Catalogue Note

This grand scene was engraved by Paul Girardet after Hippolyte Victor Valentin Sebron's painting of about 1854 and published by the famous art dealer Michael Knoedler. The view looks down Broadway between Prince and Spring Streets and includes the infamous Buckley's Minstrel Hall (there's a sign over the entrance, "Buckley's") and three Chinese men carrying advertisements for P.T. Barnum's American Museum.
