Vintage drawing of a two-story farm house. With smoke coming from the fireplace, a white picket fence and a front walk, this house just seems to say, “Welcome Home.” This isn’t just any old farm house but the birthplace of Jay Gould, who was a distinguished speculator in stocks, a railroad owner and financier from Delaware who is remembered as one of the most infamous robber-barons in history.
There are over 200 wonderful, vintage illustrations on Reusable Art that were included in Hill’s Album of Biography and Art. We have the author, Thomas E. Hill, for publishing such a wonderful resource in 1882.
