Tilyou's amusement park from the late 1800's till the park closed circa 1960. The decals were bigger than most decals...8 1/2 by 11 inches. We sold two of them but kept the last one all these years because we knew we'd never see another like it. We recently made a print from the original...same size...same colors...on card stock paper...
