About the Artwork

Saturday Evening Post December 7, 1946.

Using a dining car from the New York Central's Lake Shore Limited as his setting, Rockwell captured a moment in his own son's life that he thought would touch a common cord. Rockwell's painting describes a young boy's first experience of calculating a waiter's tip. At Rockwell's request the New York Central diverted a dining car bound for Albany to New York City where he and his ten-year-old son Peter met it for a model shoot. Once there, he decided the "20th Century Limited" was too modern and requested an older model. The following week an older car and a twenty-eight year veteran waiter were provided, all to Rockwell's satisfaction.
