1938 20th Century Limited steamliner.
After Lou Grumet acquired a number of antique canes depicting iconic New York places and people, he commissioned Vancouver yacht maker and cane carver Ivan Wilson to create a cane commemorating the streamliner trains designed for New York Central's Twentieth Century limited train service. The carved handle of the wooden cane depicts the streamlined train.
Gift of Lou and Barbara Grumet
