Harper's Weekly: Protecting the Bluffs

The August 27, 1887 issue of Harper's Weekly featured our own bluffs on the cover, in a wood engraving by Charles Graham. The title: "Protecting the Bluffs at Memphis, Tennessee." Here is a reproduction of that cover illustration (click for larger image). We have also provided links so you can download the image for wallpaper.
