Norman Malm's Iconic Railroad Hobo. Pine. @13” tall x 15” long. Signed on front. Norman hand carved railroad track as well as hobo. Incredible carving. Norman has one small nail in foot of hobo to keep him from slipping off the track and one small nail in knapsack by the hand. The hobo is held onto the railroad track by a peg in his foot. Undoubtedly this was carved with the many hoboes who visited his family on the farm in Johnstown during the Depression in mind.
