I found this in a box of broken dishes the other day,it is in fair condition for as old as I think it is,but maybe someone here can tell me more about it.I love train stuff,so I plan on reframing it and hanging it up.The last 2 pics are of the back,and it measures about 5x8 inches.Thanks for looking!

    Thanks Mani,I plan on putting it in a 2 side frame,that is what it was in,but it was broken.
    I forgot to mark it unsolved!!!!!!!CW HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Yes you would not want to hide the other side with all the others he did along with Train . Calling 911 CW to edit to unsolved . I want a edit for when I need to correct a word that was either changed by spell check or I did a typo on too CW Help me too :-)

    These are known as Stevengraphs-- from the original maker and inventor of the process. It is nice that yours comes from this maker!

    They have a great collector following-- the lack of silk aging or discoloration really sets yours apart from many examples.
