Where did this painting hang?
On a wall. Sorry I just couldn't resist.
Technically speaking, a wall would be incorrect.
I have a copy in my bedroom is that the answer, jk
How about...The state Capital, or the Springfield Depot?
906 Olive St., St. Louis, MO
Did I see that in the mueseum at Ash Grove?
The General Office in Springfield MO
The Puzzler is pleased to see that he stumped the group.
The painting in question hung on the bulkhead of the Frisco's Grumman Gulfstream I. The Frisco bought this aircraft in January 1970 to replace its DC-3.
The DC-3 was always called Churchill's airplane. It appears that prior to it's puchase by the Frisco, the DC-3 was used regularly by Sir Winston Churchill.
Puzzler - a good one!
Good one indeed. Can anyone identify the gentlemen that are seated?
I don't know who these SLSF gentlemen are, but I'm sure they are more comfortable in their SLSF Gulfstream 1 (G1) than they would have been in their old DC-3. During my working career, I was fortunate enough to fly around North America frequently on my company's G2 and G4 (both pure jet powered as opposed to the G1, which was a turboprop), as well as a few other types of corporate aircraft.
Nice! Also very efficient when used properly. The only way to go (except for automobile executives today!).
