Taking the Train

About to board the train in 1954 bound for Chicago and a conference of the railroad yardmasters union. Wally was a union representative for many years and he and Blanche traveled all over the country to attend these conventions.

How many photographs like this did people take when trains and ships were the only way to travel? A pullman car seems like such a luxury now.
