Very nice. And I like how the man is looking straight at you/us. I can't quite see what those things are on top : horns?

Salida Mail -- must refer to the newspaper?

Dad worked at the old Manhattan Hotel right by the bridge. (Did you get a chance to eat there and watch the river traffic?) It was his job to see that each train had a full crew; if not, he ran to the hotel room and woke up the missing member. The big turn-around at the end of the street was part of the round house area where the trains were turned around and headed back out. Sheesh -- I think I just aged by about 30 years. :p
