LARGO – The Largo Public Library received a donation of a watercolor painting depicting the Largo Atlantic Coast Line train depot that once stood in downtown Largo on Jan. 22.

Longtime Largo resident Dede Farmer Grow and her husband Bob donated the painting, library Director Casey McPhee reported.

The painting originally belonged to Grow’s father, Edward B. Farmer, who was an Atlantic Coast Line agent in Largo from 1932 to 1963. Grow and her family purchased the painting in 1967. The artist Marion Senyk presented it to Farmer.

A framed copy of the Largo Sentinel article detailing the presentation to Farmer accompanies the watercolor, which will be installed in the library’s Local History Room on the second floor.

Grow is moving out of the state and wanted the library to have this piece of Largo history for everyone to enjoy.
