Gleaned from a 1917 folio collection of historical places and people; this original 7" x 9.5" sepia rotogravure is printed on heavy quality stock and remains beautifully smooth.

Please note that this old print although smooth, has taken a bit of moisture damage long ago, mostly in the margins and in the upper left corner, a no sweat cover-up with a mat and it would be Fabulous framed. This 94 year old print is sound and fresh; in otherwise fine condition with the usual tanning you find in paper of this vintage.

There's a cool article on the backside of this print telling all about bill passed by Congress back in 1917 called the 'Hay Law' that Congressional bill that set the stage for the volunteer military and the Draft. Pretty interesting reading.

Matted and framed and displayed as a grouping, these wonderful old historical prints are simply spectacular. (Please note that the framed examples in the last photo are to show how this might look when it's framed. This print will come unframed..)
