There may or may not be a book of sketches by a staff artist. Sketches were made and used in various publications by the N&W including the “Reference Book of the Norfolk & Western Railway Company,” circa 1890 and the  1890 Virginia Summer Resorts. Many of the 1890 sketches are included in Mason Cooper’s book, “Norfolk& Western’s Pocahontas Division.”


Both 1890 books are available from Google Books.

This sketch was recently donated to the Rural Retreat Depot. Does anyone know about a book of 'Sketches by a Staff Artist'?
