Photograph of "Wedding of the rails", a re-enactment of the ceremony celebrating the connection of Los Angeles and San Francisco by the Southern Pacific Railroad, showing three men shaking hands, 1926. The man on the right wears a dark suit, bow tie and a conductor's hat. His right hang grasps the right hand of the man at center who wears a long, dark coat, lightly-colored vest, thick bow tie, and a top hat. His left hand grasps the right hand of the elderly man on the right who wears a dark suit and keeps his hat at his side. An elderly man in a dark suit looks on from behind them on the right. The railroad tracks lie beneath them.
