Lot description
O. Winston Link, Watering the 104, Bristol Roundhouse, Bristol, Virginia, 1955. Original unmounted silver gelatin print, 16 x 20 in. (40.6 x 50.8 cm.). Signed.

"With the help of Night Roundhouse Forman W. D. "Bill" Emmons at Bristol, Link was able to have the engines jockeyed about to his satisfaction. Here, a "hostler" (adapted to the iron horse from English stable keepers) positions the 104 for water as his helper tugs on the tank's lanyard."
(from Steam Steel and Stars Photographs by O. Winston Link).

Shot at the 16 stall Bristol Roundhouse built in 1926.

Ogle Winston Link (1914 – 2001), known as O. Winston Link, is best known for his black and white photography of the last days of steam locomotive railroading on the Norfolk & Western in the United States in the late 1950s.
