About 21” x 27 7/8”. One of the most unusual 19th century posters we have encountered. Two sided with two different cartoon/drawings. On the salt river side is a very detailed drawing of a steam ship in center, people in the water and a face in the moon above them. Details caption below “The Cameron Flotilla”. There are too many details to list so we encourage you to enlarge the image provided. There are some darkened areas which the drawing on the reverse is showing on this side. On the reverse is a rooster sitting on the what we think is the capital dome for the state of PA. The headlines “The Allentown Democrat. - Extra”. Appears to be a guttural limerick below each of the two buildings on either side of the Rooster. Some darkened area again from the cartoon on the front side. Relates to the Salt River cartoon on the front as lower left is a caption “For Marine Intelligence see other side”. Spectacular Salt River satirical cartoons and the best one we have ever had. We have never seen before.
