Description Tracing paper with graphite drawing attached to a gravure print. The print, One Mile from Gretna, by C.B. Newhouse, was engraved by R.G. Reeve. The print depicts a horse carriage racing along a dirt road carrying six people. The carriage is pulled by four horses, two of which have riders. One figure riding the carriage is holding up a spyglass and is looking at a carriage on the opposite side of the valley. The road is lined by a fence and few trees. Below the print is the manufacturer's name and address. The artist names were printed below the left and right corners. The title was printed beneath the print. Attached on the upper left corner is a sheet of tracing paper with a two figures seated on a hover craft. With the addition, it appears as if the figures on the carriage were looking at the hovercraft.
