During the summer of 1974, with a satchel of cameras, Wickum hopped a freight train in Chicago, headed Northwest and wound up circling the country searching for the whereabouts of railroad tramps. While gathering photographs of each tramp, he spent a considerable amount of time learning their stories. With this exhibit, Wickum honors the railroad tramp.
