Bid on the original painting.
These grain elevators are a popular landmark in Buffalo NY. The white silos are a part of General Mills and the buildings in the foreground belong to a boatyard. What you can't see is that the canal in between them–grain would be shipped by boat through the Great Lakes to the mill to be processed into cereal or flour.

The blue shadow on the grain elevators is from the Skyway.
