A Tribute to Grandfather Severyn

A Tribute to Grandfather Severyn

The journaling reads:

After World War I, my grandfather went to

work in the Information Department at

Grand Central Terminal, New York City.

He worked his way up to become the head

of Information and this photo was taken

for a Tarrytown cigarette ad in which he

boasted about being able to smoke two

packs a day without it bothering his voice.

He lived to be 89.

The frame and calligraphy are taken from

the Plaque of Honor given to him on his

retirement in 1959. The decals around the

edge of the frame are the logos of all the

railroad lines that went in and out of Grand

Central Terminal in 1959.

Font is Lucida Bright

I used Julie O's perfect Vintage Dreams and Paper Pack - available at the SAS Boutique:
