The Original Golden Spike

The Original Golden Spike from the First Transcontinental Railroad across the United States of America.  Photo taken at the Cantor Arts Center Stanford University.   A very poignant artifact.   I’d like to think that this spike honors the men who preformed the manual labor.  The thousands of men who actually built the railroad.
