1869 GREAT EVENT Union Pacific Railroad Golden Spike Centennial, May 10, 1969. Omaha

May 10th 1869 Great Event ! RailRoad from the Atlantic to the Pacific Grand Opening of the Union Pacific Platte Valley Route 1869 poster reprinted in 1969 by the Golden Spike Centennial Celebration Commission rather a rare find, this poster has spent most of its life rolled up in the original mailing tube that it was sent in. (cost a whole 10 cents to send it back then, a dime, imagine that !!) 15 inch wide 36 1/2 inch long not in perfect shape, but I really am not sure it wasn't that way from the beginning, I've had it over 30 years, and only taken it out of the tube a few times. ~~~ will be shipped via USPS first class insured, many more vintage & antique items in the Saltys Pirate Den Vintage Variety store section http://www.etsy.com/shop/SaltysPirateDen?section_id=6777639
