“A. Cassatt” in facsimile signature, “President of the Pennsylvania Railroad Company.” Mezzotint engraving by Samuel Sartain. 16 x 12. Printed in Philadelphia, ca. 1900. Very good condition.

Alexander Cassatt was first vice-president of the Pennsylvania Railroad in 1880 but left when George Roberts was chosen president over him. Returning in 1897, he became president of the railroad, which Roberts had consolidated strongly within Pennsylvania, and expanded on Roberts’ successes. Cassatt's greatest achievements were the railroad's tunnel into Manhattan and its huge Pennsylvania Station. Mezzotinted by Samuel Sartain, this portrait shows Cassatt in a classical format as a strong leader of industry. $125
