Oil train crossing snowy desert   Save
Joe Munroe Archive
Description: 1974 Joe Munroe photograph showing an oil tanker train rolling through a Utah desert that has been blanketed with snow. Trains remain one of the most efficient way of moving large quantities of products across the United States, especially oil. Joe Munroe's career began in 1939 at the Cranbrook Academy of Art. He served in the Air Force during World War II and then joined Cincinnati-based Farm Quarterly magazine. Though raised in Detroit, agriculture became an important subject of Joe's photographs. He moved to California in 1955 and free-lanced, taking magazine assignments and selling his own work. View on Ohio Memory.
