This is a 1937 Railroad Calendar of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway Lines. It is a treasure with aging discoloration and some minor tearing near the hanger. Minor spotting. The children are adorable and Chessie is a precious cat. Her kittens are just as cute. The sketches are by artist, Lemuel Thomas. Description as follows:
