Becker collection, Boston College


Not sure if the group is aware of the Becker collection at Boston College. Becker was an artist for Leslie's Illustrated Weekly. A number of his 1869 transcontinental railroad sketches are in the Becker collection. Here is the link to Civil War era and 1869 railroad sketches.

You need to surf the web page for other related sketches, such as his sketch of the post office at Promontory, 1869.
