Original caption
Cumberland - The engraving represents Cumberland as it is entered from the south-east upon the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. On the left is shown the deep and narrow valley, by which the Potomac finds a passage through Will's Mountain. The Court House, the Catholic and the Episcopal Churches, and the Academy, all on Fort Hill, are seen in the central part. The Delaware and Cumberland Canal, canal boats, etc., appear in the foreground. The point of the mountain on the left is in Virginia - on the right in Maryland.
