As mentioned in the other thread, I love looking at these prints. This one is probably my favorite.

Oh, just lovely! I love those kinds of pictures. Your mind just runs away with you. I imagine what's behind those trees and what it might look like inside the houses. *sigh*

Yes, I like to imagine what it would be like to live there, and what the way on up the road looked like.

Here is a print from 1868.

Wouldn't that have been nice, to go out skating in the moonlight? People used to do things like that...
Now we're all inside, with our faces buried in screens...uh, speaking of which.... :oops:

This is probably the most popular of all the C&I prints, though there are some I like better.

That one is pretty, with its vibrant colors, but I also have seen others that I like better.
