Santa Fe Railway was founded in 1859. The company helped settle the mid-west in the later part of the 19th Century by selling real estate and farm land sanctioned by Congress. They became the second transcontinental railway to exist and expanded further with north-south routes in California. Santa Fe had a robust freight business and expanded its transportation reach with a bussing system. The company was featured in a 1945 song, "On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe" sung by Judy Garland for the film "The Harvey Girls." In 1996, the railway merged with the Burlington Northern Railway to form the Burlington Northern & Santa Fe Railway.

In this image by Adolph Heinze (1887 - 1958) we see the Santa Fe train speeding past the Red Cliffs of Western New Mexico with a Native American Mother and child in the foreground. The image invites the viewer to enjoy the newly expanded route of the railroad through the West and proudly displays the beauty of the Red Cliffs. Heinze was born in Chicago where he was trained in art. He was a member of the Painters and Sculptors of Chicago, the Chicago Gallery Association and the All-Illinois Society of Fine Art. Heinze painted many landscapes of the Rocky Mountains during his career and was known best for these paintings.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
