This view of railroad construction was captured by Davidson as Northern Pacific's transcontinental line neared completion. (It was opened in 1883.) Cabinet was a town in Bonner County, Idaho, east of Lake Pend Oreille, close to the Montana border. Chinese workers provided much of the labor for the railway, though in this photo they are in the background, visible in detail view 2.
