Reproduction of a wash-drawing depicting a covered wagon passing in front of a hotel and a blacksmith shop. A team of four horses, one ridden by a man holding the reins, is pulling the wagon carrying a woman passenger. On the wagon's canvas side is displayed "20 days to Pittsburgh". A sign identifies the hotel's name as the Eagle, and another advertises meals for 2 shillings. A dog is running alongside the front wheels of the vehicle.
The print is from Frank Taylor's "Old Philadelphia" series, published 1915-1927.
