The Cover

This Oscar E. Berninghaus painting, "Union Pacific Train in Western Kansas, About 1870," was executed in 1911 as one of a series of Westerns commissioned by Adolphus Busch of St. Louis. It becomes our cover reproduction through the courtesy of August A. Busch, Jr.

Here again an artist skillfully painted an arrangement of many of the eye-catching props which are hallmarks of the American West that was frontier town, Indians, wigwams, balloon-stacked locomotive, wooden cars, station, stagecoach, and covered wagon. The result is a composite suggesting a U.P. station scene west of Junction City.
