In 1957, The Pig Stand #10 on Port Arthur Road at Highland Ave was a popular destination for teens after high school games. This painting depicts a gathering of students from rival schools, South Park and Beaumont High, at the Pig Stand. The artist has included several classic cars from the 1950s and 60s in the scene, including a '57 Chevy Bel-Air Convertible and a '55 Ford Crown Victory. The Pig Stand, built in 1924, holds a special place in the artist's memories as it was a popular hangout spot for several generations of teens. The painting is part of a series that aims to capture nostalgic moments from the 1950s and 60s, featuring the artist's friends and relatives as models.
