Vintage Travel Graphic for Crafts, Collage, Scrapbooking or Card Making: Two Victorian Ladies Viewing the Hudson

“Paradise was always over there, a day’s sail away.
But it’s a funny thing, escapism. You can go far and wide and you can keep moving on and on through places and years, but you never escape your own life.
I, finally, knew where my life belonged. Home.”
― J. Maarten Troost, Getting Stoned with Savages: A Trip Through the Islands of Fiji and Vanuatu

A black and white illustration from June 7, 1893. The image shows two Victorian ladies, one seated and one standing, on a little hilly mound surrounded by trees and wildflowers. Both are looking out towards the gorgeous scenery unfolded before their eyes. The caption that originally appeared below the engraving read: "It was a view of that noblest of rivers, the Hudson."
