The Cover

An Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe inspection train near the end of track, 50 miles west of Dodge City, in the fall of 1872.

The blurred appearance of the man on horseback was caused by movement of his mount while the time exposure was being made. Perhaps to his surprise, the photographer came up with an excellent silhouette of himself and camera.
