The present work was published as the cover illustration of the October 7th, 1961 issue of The Saturday Evening Post.

The Post editors wrote of this cover, “Nineteen moist commuters. See how they run. Scarcely a word of complaint about how the rain in suburbia seems to fall mainly when they detrain. Artist John Falter can afford to laugh at these rush-hour scurriers. Falter’s studio is in his home and he painted the railroad station at nearby Gwynedd Valley, Pa., in his own good time, when the sun was shining.” (The Saturday Evening Post, October 7, 1961, p. 3)
