"Union Station, Portland, Maine, Remembered" circa 1936
A glowing night scene with businessmen arriving after a long day's work and shoppers returning from Boston. All are greeted to fresh falling snow at Portland's Union Station. Portlanders still fondly remember this landmark which was dismantled in 1963. Some research went into this scene. I used a 1920's Reo for the bus, an early 1930's Ford for the smaller taxi and I turned my Grandmother's 1936 Pontiac into the far left taxi. First in the Portland Series.

"Evening Chores" circa 1950
These barns are part of a long past dairy farm. It's on a road which loops off Route 2 and then back again a few miles along. It's almost as though when travelling this road, one returns to a simpler time when gasoline was 19 cents a gallon and coffee was 5 cents for a cup. I once had the 1950 Chevy pick-up that's in this picture. My daughter named it Reddy Jughead.
