The Promenade

Print Title: The Promenade

This award winning print is part of the Steampunk inspired Steam Series I. This photo took first place at the 2013 CanalFest Arts and Craft Show in the Drawing, Graphics and Photography category.

This is an original print that I photographed. This photograph is from the Colonel Ward Pumping Station site near Buffalo, New York. This ornate and magnificent industrial building with tile walls and floors houses five 60′ tall, 1,100 ton stationary steam engines with 20′ 30 ton flywheels made by the Holly Manufacturing Company from Buffalo, New York. When the Col. Ward station went into service in 1915, the only one larger was a water pumping station in Paris, France.

The building’s expansive interior is breathtaking. It’s the size of several football fields and has a 90′ peak. Brass railings and steel staircases are prominent, along with a series of turn-of-the-century light posts. There are just 8 massive steam engines like this left in the world and 5 are here.

All 8x10, 16x20, 20x30 prints are produced using use a traditional photographic process. Printing is on real photographic paper which is exposed with light and then run through a chemical process, on Kodak Endura Professional Paper. (Read description on other items)

All prints will be ready for framing. There will be minor cropping on the 20″ x 30″ print.
