From El Paso to New Orleans [Excerpt from: From Mexico to Chicago and New York: guide for the traveler, which described the principal cities and railroads
Cardona, S. Adalberto de
Cardona’s guide is intended as a practical companion for traveling by railroad. Along with descriptive passages covering historic landmarks in both the US and Mexico, detailed information is provided regarding the individual railroad companies, the stations they serve, their timetables, tickets, and routes, as well as the design and construction of the bridges and tunnels which lie along their tracks. As noted in the title the descriptive and tourist-oriented sections dealing with Chicago and New York are the most extensive, but Cardona’s trip also takes him through large areas of both countries, including Texas, New Mexico, Missouri, Ohio, Massachusetts, Arkansas, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, and Colorado, and in Mexico he visits the cities of Guadalajara, Aguascalientes, Saltillo, Monterrey, and Durango, among others. This chapter, in particular, focuses on the trip from El Paso to New Orleans and also provides the reader with information about New Orleans’ restaurants, hotels, and tourist attractions.
