City of Springfield Collection - Ostendorf Originals
Positives from original ink and wash by Lloyd Ostendorf

(To promote tourism for individuals and businesses in Springfield and surrounding areas)

The following ink and wash originals are owned by the City of Springfield. Each subject was to represent a trade or industry in the Springfield area, to promote tourism. A change in the Convention and Tourism C.E.O. stopped the project. Phil Wagner spearheaded this effort. Dr. Wayne Temple wrote the historical significance of each ink and wash. Ostendorf and Wagner made negatives, positives, and prints of each picture before delivery. Most of those ink and wash originals will display a master mark showing a W with a P and a T on respective arms of the W. This was a joint venture to promote Lincoln and central Illinois. A promotional booklet was written by Dr. Wayne Temple, but Tourism did not complete the project. (None of the present Convention and Tourism personnel were involved.)
