Baldwin Locomotives

Description
Highly detailed graphite sketch. A bridge frames the top portion of the drawing. Underneath this bridge are several locomotives and many men working in what appears to be a rail yard. On the other side of the bridge, in the background, are buildings. People on the bridge are looking down at the locomotives. The sketch is on beige wove paper mounted on beige card, which has decorative ruled graphite lines.
