Around 1900 many children's toys were made of cast iron. While rummaging through an antique shop recently I found this cast iron fire engine. The sturdy construction and beauty of the the painted images made me want to do this painting. It also reminded me that I had some old cast iron toy horses that my father must have had as a child so I dug them out of the closet to compare them.
