Nice view showing Broadway, New York City, as it appeared in the 1840s. This fabulous American city view is a great representation of New York, showing the city bustling and with tall buildings, establishing its importance as one of the important world cities of the 19th century.
The view shows countless horse-drawn buggies, horse riders, and buildings. American flags fly high above the city. A daguerreotype artist's shop is visible, as is an unlabeled museum.
Kollner originally published this view of Broadway as part of his "Views of American Cities," as plate 44. These were lithographed and published by Goupil, Vibert, and Co. in Paris between 1845 and 1851.
