Souvenir of Wheeling: 1885

Souvenir of Wheeling, 1885: Cover

A collection of images of Wheeling published by Ward Bros. of Columbus in 1885. The booklet measures 7 x 11 cm. and contains 12 leaves attached accordion-style. The booklet has fallen apart, so we are not sure of the original order of the leaves.
