The Royal Windsor Waggon.In this print may be traced a full length portrait of Queen Victoria.

Puzzle prints, in which a profile face of a contemporary figure was concealed within a landscape or decorative pattern for the viewer to find, were extremely popular in the early 19th century. This print is one of the more ambitious and unusual in the genre, incorporating an entire full-length depiction of Queen Victoria, which becomes clear immediately if the print is rotated 90 degrees anti-clockwise.
