The Center’s traveling exhibition, Requiem for Steam: The Railroad Photographs of David Plowden, opens today at the University of Alabama’s Mildred Westervelt Warner Transportation Museum in Tuscaloosa. The exhibit will be on display through June 24. It features thirty meticulously-crafted black-and-white prints, made by Plowden himself, of steam locomotives in the United States and Canada, as well as their environments and the people who operated them.
“We are delighted to have David Plowden’s railroad photography featured at the Mildred Westervelt Warner Transportation Museum,” says Scott Lothes, president and executive director of the Center for Railroad Photography and Art.
Admission to the exhibit is free, and you can read more on the museum’s site.
