This rich design was part of a group of posters commissioned by the Santa Fe Railway to promote travel to the west. The 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.
One of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, northern Arizona's Grand Canyon puts the grandiosity of Mother Nature in perspective and serves as a window into the region's geological and cultural past. Among the country's first national parks, the Grand Canyon has long been considered a U.S. treasure – and a very vast one at that. Its immense size leaves many visitors awestruck. The South Rim is open year-round, but the North Rim closes for the winter. The Grand Canyon is accessible in various ways and it still remains as a significant tourist attraction.
