Excerpt from the magazine:
"...a view of the aqueduct of the Erie Canal, passing over a bridge of graceful form and solidly constructed. The ruined arches of another bridge are seen in front. The foaming rapids in the foreground, the busy factories that rise on either hand, make this a picturesque and interesting scene."

Present-day view would be from the Court Street Bridge, click here.
