'A New-York River-Front', 1874. Creator: William James Palmer Featured Print

'A New-York River-Front', 1874. Creator: William James Palmer

'A New-York River-Front', 1874. Sailing ships on the quay in New York Harbour, New York, USA. '...a quaint and picturesque scene, lying but a short distance from the Battery on the East-River side. This is a portion of the town which modern improvement has left untouched; the wharves where the old-fashioned ships from far-off ports discharge their precious cargoes; where merchants of the old Knickerbocker quality conduct their business in dark and unsavory chambers; where the old tars...are wont to assemble; where the very idea of a steamship is profanation - a venerable, quaint, and decaying place, dear to the hearts of the ancient mariners'. From "Picturesque America; or, The Land We Live In, A Delineation by Pen and Pencil of the Mountains, Rivers, Lakes...with Illustrations on Steel and Wood by Eminent American Artists" Vol. II, edited by William Cullen Bryant. [D. Appleton and Company, New York, 1874]

'Under the Catskill Falls', 1874. Creator: W. J. Linton Featured Print

'Under the Catskill Falls', 1874. Creator: W. J. Linton

'Under the Catskill Falls', 1874. The Kaaterskill Falls on Spruce Creek, New York State, USA. '...the torrent makes a second leap over huge bowlders...dashing itself into foam in its headlong fury...There is nothing more beautiful in American scenery than this water-fall as it leaps from the lofty height and dashes into spray in the hollow basin below. Wearing away several yards deep into the cliffs, it has left a pathway all around the Fall, from which you have a fine view...when the stream above is swollen, through a veil of glittering drops dripping from the rocks above....Standing on the narrow pathway, you look through the great white veil of falling waters, leaping out over your head and sending up clouds of spray that float off down the gorge. Sometimes, when the sun is shining brightly, a dancing rainbow will keep pace with you as you creep around the semicircle beneath the rock'. From "Picturesque America; or, The Land We Live In, A Delineation by Pen and Pencil of the Mountains, Rivers, Lakes...with Illustrations on Steel and Wood by Eminent American Artists" Vol. II, edited by William Cullen Bryant. [D. Appleton and Company, New York, 1874]
