Photographer's Note

After we visited the School of Aeronautics, our parental obligations ended and we were free to play tourist for the rest of the weekend. For dinner we headed to The Depot Grille at Lynchburg’s historic riverfront.

As its name suggests, The Depot Grille is a converted vintage rail depot. Its kitchen is comprised of two Georgia Northern Railroad freight cars which were fully functional until their transformation. After being lifted by cranes from the railroad tracks to the back of the building, they were converted to The Depot Grille’s kitchen. The booths in the dining area are actually church pews from Grace Evangelical and Congregational Church in Allentown, Pennsylvania. The back bar is from a pharmacy in Edinburg, Virginia. According to a local legend, a stray bullet shattered the original mirror during an attempted bank robbery by none other than Frank and Jesse James who decided to rob the bank next door to the pharmacy on their way back to Missouri after the Civil War.

This photo was taken going into the restaurant. In the workshop, I have uploaded a similar photo coming out of the restaurant. I like the light in the WS photo better but the camera shake made it less than ideal to upload as the main image.
