Photo of

Tom Blake and Johnny Cash

On the day that Columbia Records came to Victoria Station's Newport Beach, California, location, to photograph Johnny for the "Destination Victoria Station" album cover, I was there. I asked Johnny if we could have a photo together. I love it because he was wearing his blue jean train jacket that he cherished.

He later autographed the photo for me, which can be slightly seen in the shadow on the boxcar. I decided to use the photo for the cover of the book, "Boxcars and Prime Rib. Whatever Happened to Victoria Station?"
