The 1958 update to Union Pacific’s 1948 California booklet features much of the same text but mostly new photos. Only three of the 36 color photos in the 1958 booklet were also in the 1948 edition. These include the 1948 cover photo, a portion of which is on page 3 of the 1958 booklet, and photos of Yosemite Falls and the Stanford University Memorial Chapel.
Many of the new photos were taken from nearly the same spots as the old ones, so the only differences are updated cars and clothing fashions. Like the 1948 booklet, this one has a fold-out map in back, and the Willmarth-like graphics are the same in both booklets.
