Period Paper is excited to offer a collection of halftones, wood engravings and photolithographed maps that explore the Transcaspian Railway and the rich culture surrounding that Central Asian region towards the end of the late 19th century. Battling sand dunes and harsh climactic conditions, every train would have struggled to make it across the unwelcoming landscape and provide water, transportation and provisions to the people at its destination. Please enjoy each fascinating image.
