Gonna be working on a portrait of Grandpa Oscar. Playing around with some art apps to get some ideas. I am having way too much fun with this.
INCLUDING THIS ONE
I love old movie posters!
Lady Liberty & the Brooklyn Bridge
This is a chromolithograph copy of a painting by Andrew W. Melrose of New York Harbor and the Brooklyn Bridge originally printed by Raphael Tuck & Sons in 1887, the same year my great grandparents arrived at the immigration depot known as Castle Garden from Germany.
One of the iconic images of New York City that greeted my great grandparents upon their arrival was the Brooklyn Bridge, designed by a fellow countryman named Johann Röbling. The bridge is pictured in the distance.
Sadly, “Anton” is no longer on the Twitter.
