'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.
