Cincinnati: Times Print, [1861-1865]. Folio broadside, 18-3/4" x 25-1/4", illustrated. Text above and below a large woodcut of a train laden with new goods to Olive Green, with tophatted onlookers, women, a dog. The front of the locomotive with sign, 'Olive Green Still Ahead.' The woodcut has the imprint 'Frazer & Denis, Cin.' An exceptionally attractive and appealing advertising broadside. Small spot at the blank upper margin corner. Fine.

One of the spectators exclaims, "It is astonishing at what low prices he is now enabled to sell Goods." Another says, "Well, this arrival beats them all; I'll give him a call." The side of a railroad car with sign, "Liquors, Groceries, Farming Utensils, &c., &c. just arrived."
The Frazer & Denis firm specialized in "Designing and engraving on wood... Our establishment is the largest in the west, and our facilities such that we are enabled to execute work on the shortest notice, in the first style of art" [Cincinnati Business Mirror for 1851-2, page 70 (Cincinnati: 1851)].
