Cartersville Train Depot
During the 1980’s, I traveled and exhibited in a number of shows in the Georgia area, including my home town at that time. Cartersville had several quaint places that I painted during that era, which included their train depot. It sat in the middle of the downtown shopping district, where all the activity was. The trains still came through the center of town on their way to somewhere, USA. The depot was no longer used for passengers. The brick design was duplicated in other towns, as I was told that they used the same blueprint on all of the depots on that railroad line.
The painting and prints were very popular with the locals as I had a set of four Cartersville landmarks, The 4-Way Lunch, Train Depot, Roselawn, Ross Diner, and of course the Euharlee Covered Bridge which was a short distance west of town.
