The Old Drovers Trail print is colorful, depicts the actual large oak tree background and correct animal types that were herded (drove) by drovers in the early history of the frontier. The art of droving from the Midwest pioneer farmsteads to markets in the eastern United States was one of necessity. Midwest farms produced very well but markets were scarce so droving animals to Baltimore and other eastern cities was profitable although difficult. Droving helped the local economy, kept a good supply of farm raised meat available for growing eastern cities as well as export. Droving period depicted is about 1835 as the scene would have been on a trail in eastern Ohio or western Pennsylvania.
