Relief over the entrance to the Grand Trunk Railway Offices

Relief over the entrance to the Grand Trunk Railway Offices, by Alfred Drury, R.A., 1856-1944. 1908. Source: Academy Architecture and Architectural Review (1910): 48. Interestingly, Drury has accurately portrayed an American rather than a British locomotive [Detail]. As Wikipedia points out, “The Grand Trunk Railway (reporting mark GT) was a railway system that operated in the Canadian provinces of Quebec and Ontario, and in the American states of Connecticut, Maine, Michigan, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont.” [Click on image to enlarge it]
