Lights, camera, action! California State Parks and the California State Railroad Museum will soon debut a new exhibit titled "Double Exposure: Photography and the Transcontinental Railroad" that examines the emergence of photography and the ways in which the Central Pacific and Union Pacific railroads used the new medium during the construction of America's First Transcontinental Railroad. Ultimately, the technology of photography not only helped to tell the story of the construction of the Transcontinental Railroad but also helped to shape public perception and foster acceptance for the massive endeavor that encouraged travel and settlement westward. The new exhibit will showcase a timeline of the development of photography from 1839 through today, along with a wide range of photography elements. Museum visitors will also have the opportunity to explore additional content and take pictures in a special photo booth set-up as part of the exhibit. As another interactive component, a detective card game will help families explore the exhibit together, allowing children to lead the way to discover more about the materials, people, technology and history behind photography's role in documenting this great feat. Plan a visit to the Railroad Museum soon to view the "Double Exposure" exhibit - it's sure to capture the interest of visitors of all ages!

This exhibition was guest-curated by Dr. Glenn Willumson, University of Florida, the author of Iron Muse: Photographing the Transcontinental Railroad published by the University of California Press in 2013.
