Lake Tahoe poster
The poster includes a reference to Hank Monk, a stagecoach driver who appears in a Mark Twain work

Four separate businesses offer tourists the chance to travel by stagecoach, railway and steamer to the Lake Shore House in Tahoe City.

One of the business owners, stagecoach driver Hank Monk, is mentioned in Mark Twain's collection of travel writing Roughing It (1872).

We have this incredible historical pamphlet signed by Twain.
