The question has been answered it reads J. Hoover Philadelphia. Thank you
Antique Expert: Tim in Antiques, Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 2 years ago

It is a circa 1890 Philadelphia. Chromolithograph published by J. Hoover. J. Hoover & Sons issued popular prints for the masses in the last decade of the 19th century and the first decade of the 20th century. This was a business much like Currier & Ives, though Hoover & Sons issued chromolithographs. Joseph Hoover was one of the few native-born Americans who achieved success with chromolithography. Hoover started by making elaborate wood frames in Philadelphia in 1856, but within a decade or so he began to produce popular prints.

Because this is a multiple print the value range is around $65.00 to $85.00. With the water damage possibly a little less.
