The Former Cafe, 5" x 7"

Regular price

This piece comes from the Communities Set in my Life in the 30s and features a former cafe and general store that were once part of a small town in Eastern Colorado. Though never a bustling town, it was a station stop on the Old Prairie Dog Express which was used primarily for shipping cattle from the area ranches. The railroad also brought in water to the residents of this arid prairie and was housed in the black water tower evidenced in this 1930s photo, one of the few structures that remains today in this abandoned town.   Acrylic paints and authentic ephemera (early 1900s agricultural chart, 1800s receipt and vintage ledgers) are layered above and below a vintage image from the 30s which lends not only an aesthetic quality but also a historical perspective to this piece of original art.
