This etching depicts a famous Texas landmark in San Antonio, Guenthers Mill. In 1849 Carl Hilmar Guenther, a millwright apprentice, left Europe for America. He settled in Fredericksburg and built a mill on Live Oak Creek, but in 1858 a drought depleted the local grain and the creek dried up. Guenther decided to close the mill and relocate to San Antonio on the more powerful San Antonio River just south of the center of the city. In 1898 Guenthers Mill was renamed Pioneer Flour Mills. The company is still controlled by Guenther's descendants with eight of ten board seats belonging to family members.
