Main Street Trolley
Main street! How often as a young man did those words cross my mind. Main street was for me a dreamy, idyllic destination like some foreign country one reads of and thinks of often, but rarely gets to visit. A place where we as children would go to on Saturdays aboard bicycles that fairly flew as we peddled down the dusty city streets towards our destinations.
In my Main Street Memories Collection, I celebrate the main streets of my imagination. Places where trolley cars clang, movie matinees await us, and a celebration is always in progress. These are the places where people gather to do their business and share the activities of a more simple ear. I hope you’ll meet me on main street!
- The Placerville, California tetrad was coined as the Gold Country Series – Main Street Celebration, Main Street Courthouse, Main Street Matinee, and Main Street Trolley.
- The trolley’s number in Main Street Trolley is 5282 as a tribute to Thomas Kinkade and his wife Nanette’s wedding date. A store sign on the left proudly displays “Nanette K,” while Thom is hailing the trolley.
- Thom and Nanette are also hiding from the rain and from the viewer’s eye in Main Street Trolley – they are located on the left-hand side of the composition under the blue and red awning with the initials “H.E.S.”
- Main Street Trolley was originally entitled Nevada City, 1922.
