Dear Doug Noble:
I am working with the prior owner of Strawberry Lodge, from 1973-2003, Richard Mitchell, and he is writing a book on the history of the area and the lodge. It is going to press in the next month or two, and one aspect of the book is him talking about the San Francisco and Washoe Railroad that was one proposed to cross over Johnson’s Pass, or go through the mountain via a 3-1/2 mile tunnel. Intrigued by this, I found the beautiful “Topographical Railroad Map of the Central Part of the State of California and Part of the State of Nevada, 1865.” I would very much like to include a section of the map of the Strawberry to Lake Bigler area in the book and am wondering where that map is located. Is it possible to use the “clip” that you have on your website? A higher resolution scan would be better, so I am inquiring for your possible help for it would be a wonderful addition to the book.
I sent an email about the “Topographical Railroad Map of the Central Part of the State of California and Part of the State of Nevada, 1865.” I got error that the website ‘timed out,’ so wondering if it was received. Tried to send it again, but then it says ‘You’ve already said that.’ ??
