I love it. When I worked in newspaper production in the 1980s, we had big books of "cuts" of generic images like these printed on slick paper, that could be cut out and pasted down to liven up ads. The books were fun to look through. In the Civil War they would have been literal woodcuts or metal engravings. Somebody had way too much time on his hands going through the things. :happy:
