Altoona and the Brush Mountain Beast

Behold this elegant 11 x 17 inch poster, printed on 100lb paper and sold with the thanks of a grateful artist. Comes with this description: 

This fine map drawn by T.M. Fowler (who made a career cataloguing the towns of Pennsylvania) shows Altoona’s largest industry, the railroads, resplendent in 1895. In the foreground is the mighty Pennsylvania Railroad car shops, to the right a highlighted view of the passenger car paint shops, and in the top left the Beast of Brush Mountain, a common foe of the railroads during the 19th century.
