Halloween Engine • Lewitt Him • 1942

L1090062Here’s a post for halloween…there is quite a body of literature that explores the steam engine and its association with the supernatural. The sound, fire, and fury, of the engine would certainly have terrified anyone unaccustomed to the sights and sound of the railway.
