Purpose of Drawing

This is a drawing of a train station on the former Chicago North Shore and Milwaukee Railroad. This railroad line, which paralleled the Union Pacific North Line through Lake County, IL, was abandoned in 1955. The drawing was based off of a photograph of the station taken in the 1920's. This was an exercise in pencil drawing technique at a large scale (about 15" x 20").
