It is a painting of the mill at Slater, done by Frog Smith, back in the
1970s. Frog was an oldtimer who was born in Georgia, moved to north
Florida as a kid, and came to Slater in 1940. He was always employed
as a machinist, fireman or locomtive engineer. He always had something
to do with machinery. He worked at Slater from 1940 until the mill
closed in 1944. He wrote a column in the local paper from 1974 until
1989. He also authored several books. He died in 1990.
