1950s map, shows map of narrow-gauge railway from Laws to Keeler via Owenyo, the connection with the SP "Jawbone" branch to Mojave and Los Angeles. The map also shows surrounding towns, such as Bishop, Lone Pine and Olancha. The route of Hwy 395 is also marked. The map is dotted with little pictures of sites such as Mount Whitney, the hotels at Bishop, and the water tower at Keeler. The theme of my project is the correlation between the rise and fall of towns and the rise and fall of the railroad, and the now-non-existent towns along the Keeler Branch provide a good case study. The bottom contains the quote, "Map by Carl Fallberg, copyright 1956 from "The Slim Princess", the story of the SP Narrow Gauge, 40 pages, by Hungerford Press, Reseda, CA.
