Rock Island

In the 1880's the Rock Island railroad produced and distributed the famous "Pearl Train" art works. They are a combination of painting and mother-of-pearl mosaic depicting an early steam powered passenger train, posed in front of the Rocky Mountains. They are, frame included, about 7.5 feet wide and 2 feet high.

There is one on the back wall of the "railroad room" bar in Clyde's, a pub located in the trendy Georgetown Park Mall of Washington D.C. (Another is located in Clyde's of Tysons's Corners in northern Virginia.) The photo is of The Pearl Train in Clyde's of Georgetown. It might wet your appetite to want to see the picture in person.
