1920 Yellowstone Booklet

Slightly more colorful and nearly twice as long as yesterday’s booklet, this one was actually issued by the U.S. Railroad Administration, which took over the railroads during World War I. The government returned the railroads to their owners in March, 1920.

This booklet was written for the 1919 season and has the USRA name on the cover and a list of USRA agents on the inside back cover. However, the booklet was reissued for the 1920 season, and a sticker on the front cover covers part of the USRA name and a fold-out page is glued to the inside front cover that includes a map, description, and list of agents for the Union Pacific system.
