The Pullman Palace Car Company of Chicago exhibited trains made up of many types of train cars for different purposes, such as sleeping, dining, lounging, and storage. The car shown in this photo was for dining. It was finished with the finest vermilion wood imported from Central America, with windows of stained glass, elaborately carved seats, and a small but very efficient kitchen.
