Ink wash and drawing on paper "Tie Siding" by Merritt Dana Houghton. It depicts a rocky slope with cattle and horses in the foreground. The middle ground is an open field with a road running slightly diagonally across the image with a hay wagon pulled by a two horse team. There is a fenced in house and barn to the proper right at edge the of a field. Background is lined with hills and trees.

Merritt Dana "M.D." Houghton (31 May 1846 -- March 1919) was an artist who traveled Wyoming creating pen and ink drawings of both existing and his interpretation of historic locations. He made his home at various times in Laramie, Saratoga, Buffalo, and Encampment where he completed large (and unknown) number of ink sketches of mines, ranches and landscapes. His many drawings and maps record an otherwise lost era in Wyoming's history.
