    Evelyn Curro made a whole series of really fun, fanciful railroad prints, illustrating early locomotives with a bit of artistic license thrown in. Her father was a railroad contractor, so when she moved to San Francisco and started doing illustration (e.g. of old Victorians), drawing trains was a natural.

    To see more, get the book "The American Eye of Evelyn Curro," published in 1970s by Chelsea House Publishers.

      Hi,
      I have an older frame with Evelyn Curro's Powell cable street car in it.. Under the Print is all of the information regarding the street car.. Weight, length truck center and etc.. The back of the frame is a sticker that says McKeown's Picture Framing Antiques Oakland ca. Can you help me with any other information about this print? Thank You So Much!
      Sincerely, Sandy
