What does this mean?

This is a vintage, mid 20th century, original illustration art panel image done in pen and ink on board that depicts a male train porter and passenger seemingly passing secret documents. The illustration is signed and dated 'Rogers '49' for 1949. There are publisher/printer notations in the margin indicating that this was indeed used as an interior illustration on page 4 with a mention 'Gulf 6-'49 - 5'. The pen and ink style of this work was influenced by the earlier works of American Golden Age illustrator, Franklin Booth. The estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail 'asking prices' can be higher and vary.
