More artwork for the Aquia Line

The Library of Congress posted some new (to me at least) drawings  of scenes on the USMRR Aquia Line.

    Very moving. Drawings like these seem to have an immediacy and emotional impact that contemporary photos never do. They really highlight the atmosphere.

    thanks for sharing.
