A nice antique c1900 hand colored Chine-colle photogravure of the First Railroad Train on the Mohawk and Hudson Road which was painted by Edward Lamson Henry. E. L. Henry was famous for his genre scenes and liked to depict events from recent U.S. history.
The first railway train was Edward's largest and most famous piece. It was made for the World's Columbian Exhibition held in Chicago in 1893 and was made to be exhibited in the Transportation Building. It commemorated the first trip using a steam locomotive on the route from Albany to Schenectady nearly six decades earlier. The pictured train is the DeWitt Henry.
The original painting by Edward Henry was thought to be based off of a lithograph that was based off a silhouette picture made at the original location.
This is an exceptional piece which is matted and framed. The dimensions are 20 3/8" high x 41 1/2" Long OD on the frame and the visible image size is 13 3/4" x 34 1/2".
