Summary

"The following pictures were taken by our artists at various points on the Northern Pacific Railway...Rapidly one after the other coach after coach passes before the camera. First comes a big one, six horses, crowded top and inside with tourists. They wave hats and handkerchiefs as they pass. Then comes another; then follows four more, each drawn by a four-horse team, while ten or a dozen more are strung out far into the distance. This is the Christian Endeavor excursion touring through the Yellowstone Park under the able management of the Northern Pacific Railway Co. 50 feet"--Edison films catalog.
