Review 1 for Railroad Illustrations 2013 Wall Calendar
Look & Feel:
Location: Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Nice window to the past
Date:January 10, 2013
Pros: High Quality Materials
Cons: some images are - perhaps- enlarged too much
This captures some of the classic covers from Railroad magazine from "back in the day." The images convey a feeling of a time where America's railroads were much closer to everyday events than they are today.
While I'm glad I bought this product, the covers appear to be bordering on the edge between crispness and enlarged just a bit too much. The originals were pulp magazine sized, so I don't know if a larger, higher resolution scan would have fixed this problem.
Regardless, it does convey a nostalgic feeling that - if you know the era and the magazine – will be worth the price.
