In a small  custom boat  these two men went from Lake Tahoe almost to Carson City (a 15-mile stretch) in less than 11 minutes. A double page spread with publisher’s center fold. This original wood engraving  is beautifully hand-colored and has a small  barely noticeable tear in the right side margin. It is published by Harper’s Weekly in 1877 and is signed by the artist in the plate.
