Reception: Trains Around the World by Fred M. Springer
June 27, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
The Naples Depot Museum will host a reception for Trains Around the World: Railroad Photographs by Fred M. Springer featuring a sampling of foods from select photograph locations on Thursday, June 27, 2019 from 5:30 PM-7:30 PM, sponsored in part by the Friends of Collier County Museums.
Trains Around the World: Railroad Photographs by Fred M. Springer seeks to capture the spirit of Springer’s work and showcases his rail imagery from all six inhabited continents. The selection of images reveals a commonality of human technology across cultures and nations through the enduring railroad industry. Springer created a visual record of the decline and rebirth of railroading in the United States, while internationally capturing the juxtaposition of rail technology in less-developed parts of the globe.
