Central Of Georgia Coaling Tower - Macon Canvas Print
This Macon canvas print features the historic Central of Georgia Coaling Tower. It was built for railroad yard in Macon in 1910. The image on this canvas art is based off a photo I took of the coaling tower as the sun set some years ago. At the time, I had no idea what this towering structure was. It struck me as something out of a steampunk movie. And I guess as it has to do with old coal powered steam engines, I wasn't far off in the great scheme of things!
I still think this massive coaling tower is a thing of odd industrial beauty and I don't know what use it could possibly have in the modern world but I was captured by its beauty standing in the evening sun that night and it left me hoping that an eventual re-use is found for this piece of local railroad history.

Canvas Prints - Product Information
Stretched canvas prints are a great choice for decorating your home or office. Canvas art is a classic choice that is at home in traditional and modern decor alike.
After the purchase of your canvas print, it is made to your order. The artwork is printed on an acid-free poly/cotton blend canvas. The use of archival inks and substrate means that your canvas art print should last a lifetime without fading or loss of color.
When ordering your print, you have a choice between glossy and matte finishes. While I ordinarily love matte finishes on prints, I do like the sheen that comes on glossy canvas prints. Ultimately I would suggest letting the amount of light in your space guide your choice. In a brightly lit environment, I would lean towards a matte finish to reduce the chance of glare.
There are three wrap styles to choose from for canvas prints. The mirrored wrap choice mirrors and extends the image to the sides of the canvas wrap (without losing any of the original artwork on the front). The majority of the time I would suggest this is the best choice. The other two options are a solid black wrap or white wrap. You can see a preview of each option when selecting wrap color.
After printing, the canvas is stretched over and secured to a wooden frame of 1.5" by 1.5" stretcher bars. The entire production process takes from 10 to 15 business days. Your artwork will arrive in sturdy packaging. The hanging wire will be attached and all hardware necessary to hang your canvas print will be included. Canvas prints are a great ready-to-hang option.
