Union Pacific Photograph Car

From: "CHAVAWN WOODALL KELLEY" CKelley@uwyo.edu

I'm researching the photographers Baker and Johnston of Evanston, circa 1881.  A 1924 Uninta County History by Elizabeth Arnold Stone says "With a photographer named Johnson he [Charles Baker] established the Union Pacific Photograph Car, well-known for years throughout the West."  This Johnson could be Eli Johnson of Evanston or W.J. Johnston of Green River.  They’re pretty illusive fellows.  Any ideas how I might learn more about the photographers or the UP Photograph Car? 

Thank you,
