John Austin - Snow Hill - 5072 Hurricane (W)
Birmingham Snow Hill Blank Fathers Day Birthday Card by John Austin FGRA
A busy scene is
shown in this terrific painting by Railway Artist John Austin FGRA
The artist grew up in Birmingham and can remember taking trains on holiday from Snow Hill station, thus producing a painting as much from personal memory as from reference.
Seen in the foregroud is Castle Class locomotive 5072 'Hurricane', named after the famed WWII fighter aircraft.
