Jackie Hadnot Wood Carving for El Pueblo
Pictured is a wood carving by artist Jackie Hadnot, who is known for his train and rail related wood-works and who was also featured on an episode with Huell Howser several years ago creating pieces he calls “Wooden Ironhorses.” This unveiling took place on April 7, 2016, where is has been permanently installed in a window frame of the former Los Angeles Railway building at El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument, the back side of Olvera Street, at 611 Alameda Street, across from and facing Union Station. The wood purchase was made possible by a grant from Las Angelitas del Pueblo and Jackie donated his time and talents to render this project. There are three more window alcoves which, over time, could possibly have additional carvings, but, in the meantime, Jackie will be busy carving a new crucifix for Olvera Street.
Jackie Hadnot carved a piece for the Mount Lowe Preservation Society which was on display at the Pasadena Museum of History for the Pacific Electric Railway Then and Now show and we are proud supporters of Jackie’s work, providing historical images and information to him to assist in his creations.
