London artist, William Bartlett, visited Rochester between 1835-1837 on commission to illustrate the local scenery of the northeastern United States. His engravings were originally published uncolored for George Virtue's popular series, American Scenery. Shortly after his untimely death in 1856, Bartlett's drawings were reprinted as a collection in The History of The United States.

Present-day view would be from the High Falls Terrace Park (near St. Paul St), click here.
