The Pullman Porters and West Oakland (CA) (Images of America)
The Pullman Porters and West Oakland (CA) (Images
A hub of transportation and industry since the mid-19th century, West Oakland is today a vital commercial conduit and an inimitably distinct and diverse community within the Greater Oaklandmetropolitan area. The catalyst that transformed this neighborhood from a transcontinental rail terminal into a true settlement was the arrival of the railroad porters, employed by the Pullman Palace Car Company as early as 1867. After years of struggling in labor battles and negotiations, the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters Union became the first African American–led union to sign a contract with a large American company. The union’s West Coast headquarters were established at Fifth and Wood Streets in West Oakland. Soon families,benevolent societies, and churches followed, and a true community came into being.

George M. Pullman: Palace Car Magnate
George M. Pullman: Palace Car
Executive jets and yachts are the quintessential tableau of today's tycoons. A century or more ago it was Pullman Palace Cars and yachts. The Palace Cars were ornate, featured extravagant pomp, from crystal chandeliers and marble baths to sumptuous bedrooms, libraries and living rooms walled in mahogany, with servant quarters nearby. The man who made this possible, George Pullman, catered to the wealthy, provided unique cars built to individual tastes and standards, but also gave ordinary railroad travelers Pullman cars where passengers could sleep in berths on longer journeys. Pullman also developed Pullman City south of Chicago, designed to become the utopian factory city for his employees and executives. It was a grand idea, with a bank, hotel, library, theatre, park and homes, but it remained his fiefdom. At its peak, 12,000 employees lived in this insular community. Pullman drew divergent opinions of his legacy from caustic remarks by Ambrose Bierce to receipt of the Order of the Star and Cross from the King of Italy. Award-winning author Daniel Alef tells Pullman's absorbing story, an integral part of the history of American railroads and the history of Chicago. [3,371-word Titans of Fortune article].

In the United States Circuit Court, Northern District
The present case, while it is peculiar in the circumstances that the Sessions patent is of recent date, is also more peculiar in the circumstance that the infringement which the defendants have committed has been most open, determined and flagrant. I humbly submit that the conduct of the defendants in appropriating for their own benefit every feature of improvement which the Pullman vestibuled train exhibits, should properly induce the court to exercise its power to prevent a further continuance of the wrong in case it shall be found that the Sessions patent covers any legal subject of invention whatever. This proposition leads me to ask your Honors to consider for a single moment what is the theory of the law with respect to issuing the preventive writ of injunction pending the hearing of a cause. As I understand the theory of the writ, which it is purely within the discretion of the chancellor to grant or refuse according to the circumstances of the particular case, its object is to preserve the existing state of titles to properties as they were at the commencement of the controversy. It is indispensable that the party seeking the writ shall have a title to the invention which he asserts by his patent which is not open to serious doubt or question. It is also indispensable tha...
