This is a great condition CDV close-up of the famed "Driving the Golden Spike" scene taken at Promontory Point, Utah when the Union and Central Pacific Railroads finally met each other, completing the Trans-Continental Railroad on May 10, 1869. The actual location was named Promontory Summit, but reporters of the time got the name wrong, and it stuck. This is a very rare and desirable image. It is back-marked by Savage & Ottinger of Salt Lake. The is the second most famous image of the driving and it shows rail-workers and dignitaries posing for the occasion. In the original view, there's a locomotive at each side (out-of-view in this image) of the spike location and a man standing on top of a telegraph pole with an American flag flying on it to the far right. This can be view by searching on line. One of the great events in American History and Westward Expansion in an image.
