    Do you think those background colors are watercolor? How did they get that effect in 1900?

    What do the labels on the statues say? They are illegible.

    @davidf42

    Thanks for those — most of them I got, except 1 and 9. However, on closer inspection, I think #1 is:
    The Great American Railway Hogge (which makes more sense)

    Number 1 is “Ye Great American Railway Hogge”
