"During an eight-year period beginning in 1848, the four Smith brothers issued a remarkably fine series of large folio city views. A few of these were engraved, but about forty others were lithographed by highly skilled printers in Boston and New York." John Reps. The prints that they produced as a rule were large, imposing, detailed, accurate and quite beautiful.Churches identified with manuscript writing and notes in right margin identify some cottages. 18th-19th Century Subjects , Town Views - United States , New York State
