Additional Details

Almost all copies of this Moran print were soon trimmed and framed, and distributed by the SFRR as promotional gifts. Few of these have survived, generally being badly framed, usually without glass, and displayed in poor conditions. A small number remained in the archives of the railroad, and so have retained their untrimmed and pristine state. The present copy is in this uncirculated condition. Nancy K. Anderson, ed., Thomas Moran, pages 301,320 (detail).
