Front page shows; "British Mail Steamer Entering the Harbor of Vera Cruz, Mexico". Prints within include: "Fort McHenry, Baltimore Harbor, Md." "The City Well, Baltimore...", and a half page print: "Execution of the Murderers of Lieut. Col. Craig at San Diego, California" which must be one of the earliest prints from this now-famous city in Southern California.
