Designer Christian Annas has assembled a gallery of “100 logos from American and Canadian railroad companies,” dating from 1845 to 2000. They show a microcosm of a century and a half’s worth of evolution in design sensibility, but they also show just how lovely and evocative many of the logos of these forgotten railroads once were.
