Show Train - New York | New Haven | Hartford Railroad, Dan Weiner Photo Print lithograph, 1949 - Beautiful metal charcoal gray frame under glass.

We knew they had dinning saloons, smoking cars, and even radio gramophones on the "Hartford Line" in the early-to-mid nineteenth century, but the showgirls have been lost to history except in this amazing photo from 1949 by Fortune Magazine photo-journalist Dan Weiner.

About Photographer:
Dan Weiner (American, 1919-1959) was an American photographer known for capturing poignant scenes of the Civil Rights Movement during the 1950s. “Mine is the first generation that can say that our understanding of the world and concepts of the forces and direction of society have been shaped not through the literary or the auditory, but the visual,” he once said. Born on October 12, 1919 in New York, NY, he studied painting at both the Art Students League and Pratt Institute during the late 1930s. During his time at Pratt, Weiner also photographed portraits of people to earn money and by the 1940s had begun working for a commercial photographer. Inspired by the works of Dorothea Lange and Walker Evans, the focus of his work became subjects that highlighted socioeconomic problems in both the United States and abroad. Weiner tragically died in a plane crash at the age of 39, on January 26, 1959 near Versailles, KY. Today, the artist’s works are held in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, among others.
