To Let

Back in the All Things Weird and Wonderful post I was mentioning how E. L. Moore's earliest work was an homage to Rowland Emett. While paging through Emett's Domain:Trains, Trams and Englishmen I came across that image on the right. It reminded me of image on the left from E. L. Moore's photo spread, with the Spumoni family in Merrie Old England, that appeared in the Jan. '56 issue of Railroad Model Craftsman. True to form, Mr. Moore left out the converted trams, and being an ex-navy man, replaced them with a precariously balanced ship :-)
