Howard Stansbury, a Captain in the U.S. Topographical Engineers, was assigned in 1849 to survey the region of the Great Salt Lake, looking for a possible route for a transcontinental railway and for a better route from Fort Bridger, in Wyoming, to Salt Lake City. The report included scientific appendixes with illustrations and a group of excellent tinted lithographs showing scenes around the Great Salt Lake.
