Lucy has been trying all day to take a picture of her friends at the Smithsonian’s Nat. Museum of Amer. History but they just won’t stand still. Her most recent attempt is in Railroad Hall. When Lucy accidentally drops her camera, & her friends run off, she’s afraid that she’ll never get any pictures taken. But as she picks up the camera & looks through the lens, she sees before her a large group of workers & bus. men wearing clothes like the ones in an old western movie. Lucy comes to realize it is 1869 & she has become Andrew Russell, the man who took the famous photo of the driving of the golden spike into the last rail of the Transcont. RR. Lucy overhears amazing accounts detailing the building of the first Transcont. RR that connected the two Oceans. Illus.
