Lower resolution photo from the recently released New York Public Library collection. There are several other photos of the construction of the transcontinental telephone line in their collection. Original title: "Transcontinental telephone line of the A.T. & T. Co. : hauling eleven 4x4 8x8-18' redwood poles near stake no. 585, 3 miles east of Golconda, Nev. Tremendous difficulties in hauling caused by mountainous nature of country. There are no roads and the gangs have to make their own roads."
