A very interesting photo illustration from a 1903 reference source with fourteen photographs with descriptions on "How to Signal Across a Field."
The semaphore system was used to convey messages over long distances. This illustration depicts a woman in turn of the century dress showing the use of flags. The top row shows the signal "ready to start"; the second means "the signs that follow are to be read as letters" and the third means "The signs that follow are to be read as numbers. The fourth means "cancel previous signal." Finally, the other pictures convey the message "tea is ready" each picture representing a letter. Just a little more involved than text messaging.
The page measure 6.25 by 9 inches and is in excellent condition with a defined print area of 5 x 7 inches. There's text on the reverse side that does not show through.
Shipped via air mail in an unbendable mailer via First Class Mail.

Artesian wells tap the confined groundwater trapped below impermeable strata beneath the surface of the earth. Natural pressure forces the water to rise, sometimes above the surface of the earth. San Antonio began to rely on artesian wells for its water supply in 1891.
The photo of 1896 and re- printed in 1900 shows the tremendous amount of pressure that Aquifer water was under at that time. The column of the water is about five times the height of the men standing before the spray of water. The effect of releasing all this pressure through wells was that spring flows began to decline immediately and significantly. By 1896 there were approximately 40 wells in the San Antonio area. By around 1900 San Antonio Springs had been reduced to just a trickle in most years.
This photograph appeared originally in R. T. Hill & T. W. Vaughan's 1896 report on the geology and underground waters of the Edwards Plateau. Hill and Vaughan were the first geologists to recognize that wells such as these had impacted spring flows. Before their publication, the widely held belief was that waters supplying the artesian wells and springs in south Texas came from the distant Rocky Mountains. They recognized that was impossible, and they explained that the true source was the rainfall of the Edwards Plateau.
This original 1900 print measures 6.5 x 9.5 inches with a print area of 4 x 7 inches and is in beautiful condition. The reverse side is blank. Perfect to frame.

This beautiful print originates from 1899 from an 1897 painting by T C Gotch ?the Heir of All the Ages.? Text below the print reads ?In this beautiful painting, the artist, Mr. T.C Gotch, has tried to picture the wonderful idea that a child of today is the heir of all the ages, inheriting all the treasures of learning and the achievements of the past.?
Thomas Cooper Gotch (1854?1931) was an English Pre-Raphaelite painter and book illustrator, and brother of John Alfred Gotch, the architect.
Gotch studied art in London and Antwerp before he married and studied in Paris with his wife, Caroline, a fellow artist. Returning to Britain, they settled into the Newlyn art colony in Cornwall. He first made paintings of natural, pastoral settings before immersing himself in the romantic, Pre-Raphaelite romantic style for which he is best known. His daughter was often a model for the colouful depictions of young girls.

When I was a bachelor I lived by myself,
And all the bread and cheese I got I laid upon the shelf;
The rats and the mice, they made such a strife,
I had to go to London to buy me a wife.
The streets were so bad and the lanes were so narrow,
I was forced to bring my wife home in a wheelbarrow.
The wheelbarrow broke and my wife had a fall;
Down came wheelbarrow, little wife and all.
