THE POND LILY
16" x 20" acrylic on canvas panel
Western Illinois interurban Rock Island Southern. The son of the owner of an on-line factory, along with a high school buddy, built this motor car and christened it the "Pond Lily." The railroad gave them a set of switch keys and let the boys joy ride with the understanding that they would clear the tracks if - and when- a train showed up.
