Two of the most popular and best-known images of Texas. These views provided easterners vivid images of life in the West. First is a tinted lithograph of the heart of El Paso drawn by A. de Vanducourt. Second is a steel engraving drawn by Arthur Schott and engraved by James D. Smillie. Both are lovely views filled with people going about their daily business. Sizes vary slightly.
Couple of tiny foxing spots, El Paso is evenly toned.
