'Wissahickon, near Paper-Mill Bridge', 1874. Creator: John Filmer

'Wissahickon, near Paper-Mill Bridge', 1874. Wissahickon Creek, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. 'No notice of Philadelphia would be complete without some description of the Wissahickon. This very picturesque little river winds through a narrow valley, between steep and richly-wooded banks, and possesses all the wildness of a stream far from the haunts of men, though it is but a few miles from one of the largest cities on the continent. Its beauties begin from the moment it pours its crystal current into the waters of the Schuylkill. As it approaches the latter river, it is quiet and peaceful ; but it soon becomes almost a mountain-torrent, as it is confined between narrow banks and overshadowed by towering hills'. 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]

'Ramapo River', 1874. Creator: A. Measom

'Ramapo River', 1874. View of the Ramapo, a tributary of the Pompton River, northern New Jersey, USA. '...the Ramapo offers many attractions. The stream, in its numerous curves, constantly presents fresh points of view. The hills - sometimes abrupt, sometimes rolling - here and there recede from the river's edge, leaving grassy fields or rocky plateaus, on either of which it is a pleasure to stroll...The sails on the river add to the variety of the scene; the fisherman's row-boat imparts to it notable life and vivacity; and the wreathed smoke of the locomotive does not seem wholly inharmonious. In fact, the railroad-train has become quite a prominent incident in our river-scenery. Railroads naturally follow the river-courses, and they give to the wildest and most unfrequented valleys a touch of human life and interest which greatly adds to the effect of mountain solitudes'. 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]
