The A.J. Russell Image of the celebration following the driving of the last spike at Promontory Summit, Utah on May 10, 1869: the completion of the First Transcontinental Railroad. At center left, Samuel S. Montague, Central Pacific Railroad, shakes hands with Grenville M. Dodge, Union Pacific Railroad (center right). Because of temperance promotion at the time, the liquor bottles held in the center of the picture were removed from some later prints.
