Colored print commemorating all aspects of American industrial progess.

They are surrounded by a collection of men performing a variety of tasks representing different industries. Behind them is a statue of Benjamin Franklin. The background shows a train, ships in a harbor, a factory with smokestacks, telegraph lines, and a construction site.
