Currier and Ives the vanishing point of the America's Great Frontier

This is a well know print that was produced by the lithography firm of currier and Ives in 1868. it represents the role of the railroad in the moving of people west. in this print we see what most people say the frontier to be. a beautiful land of rich recourses. a land that seemingly had no end and a land that even though it did have inhabitant already there they would eventually fade in to the smoke.
