Finely engraved view of Niagara Falls, by Frederck Girsch.
The view is taken from Goat Island and shows a striking image of Horse Shoe Fall.
Frederick Girsch, a German artist and engraver, emigrated to the United States in 1849. The first works he executed in the US include two premium prints for the New Yorker Criminal Zeitung, this view of Niagara Falls and another entitled, " Die Helden der Revolution." (cf. Stauffer Vol. I, p.102).
