Consists of two photograph albums containing 97 large format photographs, taken by an unknown photographer, of views along the route of the Kansas City, Pittsburg Gulf Railroad in Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas. At the time the photographs were taken, the railroad was newly completed with a terminus at Port Arthur, Texas, named after the railroad's founder, Arthur Stilwell (1859-1928), who established several other townsites along the way, including Mena and De Queen, Arkansas; Stilwell, Oklahoma; De Ridder and De Quincy, Louisiana; and Nederland, Texas. The images in the albums show aspects of the railroad itself, including tracks, depots, and trains, as well as the surrounding landscape and nearby settler economic development, including ranches, orchards, vineyards, lumber mills, logging operations, manufacturing plants, and waterworks for local cities. Other images show a boarding house, young men fishing, a park, the springs at Siloam Springs, Arkansas, and family members posing in front of a small house. Three photographs of Port Arthur, Texas, show a downtown depot, restaurant, and bars.
