Rainier National Park (Northern Pacific RR)

NP Ranier

Rainier National Park is one of the oldest inĀ America’s national park system being established in 1899. The Yakima gateway was an improved entryway into the park from the town of Yakima southeast of the Park itself. Northern Pacific Railroad operated trains from Minneapolis/St Paul to Seattle, with a stop in Yakima. Sidney Laurence created several posters for the NP of the Northwestern States and Alaska.
