Golden Spike Ceremony celebrating the 87th Anniversary


May 10 1956
The 1956 ceremony included a jet plane squadron and the retiring of the colors with music by the Bear River High School Band.  Lewis Jones is a special guest but not much detail is given on why or what he is doing at the ceremony.

The back has the highlights of Railroad History with interesting facts about where the Golden Spike was placed and how it took only six years instead of twelve.
