BUILDING MODERN STEEL PULLMANS, THE ACME OF COMFORT AND SAFETY

One of the most striking examples of the improvement of transportation facilities in the march of progress is to be found in the present-day Pullman car, a direct descendant of one of the two parent wooden coaches remodeled into sleeping compartments by a cabinet-maker, George Mortimer Pul1man, in 1859. The steel coach is a development of the last few years. It has minimized the number of fatalities consequent to railway accidents and is therefore a notable step forward along the line of economic progress.
