1954 100th Anniversary Flashbulb Photo - Horseshoe Landscape

The photographer is looking in a northwesterly direction. The Sylvania Company manufactured flashbulbs for photography. They had embarked upon an advertising campaign demonstrating the capability of their product. A westbound passenger train in the foreground stopped for the photograph. A new freight locomotive is to the right of the passenger train. Around the Horseshoe Curve in the distance at Kittanning Point are newly manufactured freight cars from the Altoona Works.
