Re: Union News Company (Railroad)

My mother worked for the Union News Company railroad restaurants in the mid 1920s. She started in Wyville, WI and later transferred to Winona, MN, and finally to Spooner, WI. I think there were 5-6 girls who all transferred together to these locations along with their boss. She told me that the Union News Company had restaurants and rooms for railworkers and travelers. She had fond memories of the years she worked in these restaurants and she kept in touch with several coworkers for the rest of her life. I have some of her photos from this time. A few years ago, I found an article about the Union News Company railroad restaurants on wikipedia, but it is no longer there.
