Content DescriptionReturn to Top

It is not clear from the accession record whether Eloise Randall or her husband, Albert W. Randall, was a railroad freight and passenger agent. The collection consists of snapshots taken along the rails, including train stations and many of the towns they stopped in. Photographs of interest include some of Salt Lake City and Logan in 1909. There are also snapshots of the interior of a L.D.S. Hospital room in 1914, some views of Bingham Canyon in 1916, and views of a fire at the Utah Oil Refining Company on Beck Street. Box 2 consists of snapshots of family and friends of the Randall's.

Technically, the photographs are poor to fair in quality, with the exception of two photograph albums in box 1, folders 9a and 9b.
