THE LAST TRIP OF FRENCHY'S WIFE
Original pen & ink drawing issued 2006
Image size 5" high by 7" wide (125 mm by 175 mm)
This is an image drawn from memory of a very unusual day in my life.
While working on the BC RAIL Rock Gang, we were asked by Roadmaster
Derek Jones if the Rock Gang could come into Lillooet by speeder
from Seton Portage, and
take the coffin containing Frenchy's wife down to Mount Currie. The
weather had been terrible for weeks, and all of the roads were washed out.
We agreed, and made the long trip north to Lillooet, south to Mount
Currie, and back to Seton. This drawing shows our arrival at the
train station in Mount Currie, with the coffin bearers waiting in the
rain for our arrival.

It is drawn with Pilot DR pigment ink pens and pencil, on high quality
drawing paper. The drawing is matted with acid free 4-ply matteboard
and liner, in an aluminum frame.
