    Rare "Overland Mail Route to California" Stagecoach Line Broadside, Portland, Oregon, 1866. This outstanding advertising broadside is printed on heavy paper sometimes referred to as enameled and is letterpressed in red and blue for the H. W. Corbett Company, proprietors of the Oregon Stage Line.
