Have you ever thought about traveling to California and wondered what it would be like? Have you ever wanted to own a piece of art? What would it be like traveling from California to Kentucky linking the places you have been?

It makes one wonder what James Howard saw through the lens of his camera at his tender young age when he began to photograph Steamboats in the late 1800's and early 1900's.
