1900s Union Pacific Railroad Popular Mechanics Hardback Magazine Protector Binder Holder Vintage Popular Mechanics Mag Keeper UPRR


This is an odd piece from about the turn of the century, I believe. It is a hardback binder stamped on the front at top "POPULAR MECHANICS / MAGAZINE" at bottom "UNION PACIFIC RAILROAD". It has a metal rod going up spine for inserting and removing magazines. The magazine in it right now is The western Monthly from 1909, it is bad condition, missing cover with loose pages, it is apparently a magazine about Utah with lots of neat old ads etc.

I'm not sure why the UPRR would have had this except maybe it was used on trains for passengers to read so the magazines would stay intact better.

The binder measures about 10.25" x 7.5" and shows normal wear consistent with age, rubbed corners, light scratches etc., but overall in really good condition.
