Lithograph printed by Lewis & Brown, New York. <BR> <BR> "The accompanying view was taken on the banks of the Juniata river, near its junction with the Susquehanna at Green's Dam. It is here, a large and rather deep stream, and is crossed, near its mouth, by a long bridge. The scenery here is comparatively tame, but in the counties of Huntington and Mifflin, through which the Juniata runs in its early and middle course, the country is of a very different character. Indeed, there may be obtained, in the immediate vicinity of this beautiful river, some of the most picturesque views to be found in the country." - Embury
