My paternal Grandfather (on my Dads side) worked in what used to be called "The Round-House" at one of the railyards in Louisville, Kentucky. Once in a great while, my Dad would take me there over the lunch hour to visit Grandad. I was amazed at the massive Locomotives. The noise, the smell, the vigor with which the men worked. I was also "baby-sat" by a woman I knew asGrandma West (who wasn't really MY grandmother, but the grandmother of a little girl my age named Gina who Grandma West also baby-sat. Grandma Wests house was near a "switching yard" for the railroad. Often times Gina and I would stand at the fence in Mrs. Wests yard, watching and listening to the deafening sounds of train cars being shuffeled around. And again, the sounds of the "yard dogs" being throttled up and down as they organized the rail cars. This area is my tribute and my fond memories of those sights, sounds and smells. (double check the sizes of the prints when you order them, as a few of are from my very beginnings in art)
