Sure the mighty Mississippi River is beautiful, but wouldn't it look better with a giant monster in it?

Comes with this description: A view of the quiet yet fast-growing St. Louis in 1832, drawn from an original painting by George Caitlin. The print is notable for Caitlin including a view of a local steamship, as well as incorporating a view of the Millstadt Monster, a giant creature from Southwest Illinois, crossing the river to feast in St. Louis’s active livestock and butchering districts
