Norfolk & Western Railroad Company


Via Unionmade we came across this great photoshoot by George Zimbel. This photographer was commissioned in the late 50's by the Norfolk & Western Railroad Company to shoot a photographic essay. This was shot in the winter and Zimbel focussed on the transportion of cola from the the Virginia mines to the city of Norfolk. After being used in an annual report, the shots were lost in a studio fire in 1966. A nice selection can be viewed at Unionmade, and a bigger selection of the essay can be viewed at Zimbel's website.
