Based by the artwork of Gunmach, Hiawatha Train tapestry shows the steam engined train in a poster style. The Hiawatha train was a passenger train which first ran in 1935 and 12 years later had five lines which are individually named. The Twin Cities Hiawatha ran from Chicago to St Paul and Minneapolis on a six hourly schedule and traversed over 410 miles. The 1945 advertisement for this train line featured an American Indian in traditional gear and the name Hiawatha refers to the American Indian spiritual leader and peacemaker who lived in the 15th century. With the use of uplifting color in a gorgeous poster style the reds, orange and cyans in this tapestry complement each other wonderfully. This art tapestry "Hiawatha Train" is backed with lining and tunnel for ease of hanging. Note: tapestry rod and tassels, where pictured, are not included in the price.
