Only made sense to choose a local artist for this work.

This is a great looking railroad commemorating the first railroad. I like the angle from which you shot this.

It's not often that one sees a B&W mural. Then again I never saw a steam locomotive that wasn't black.

Perfect location. Love that it was in Black and White - sort of fits the coal fired era.

This reminds me of an old photo. Perfect for the age the artist is commemorating. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.

I find many murals rather tacky, but you shoot some good ones - and this a nice one.
