Notes:

Shows a street scene in a commercial neighborhood. The Classical columns of the First Bank of the United States are visible on the left. Horse drawn carriages make their way down the cobblestoned street. Completed in 1797, the bank was designed by Samuel Blodgett and is believed to be one of the first examples of Classical monumental design in the country.
