Notes
Content: Scene relating to the parade of the Fire Department in New York City during the celebration of the opening of the the Erie Canal. "This fine Engine [of Clinton Company, No. 41] is mounted on a car, carpeted, and beautifully decorated with festooned drapery over vallences; it is drawn by four horses; postilions are mounted on the leaders; the driver is seated on the car, and in his rear, but in front of the Engine, is a Fireman carrying a Banner, supported on the right and left by a member of the Company. The back ground of this Engine is taken from a picture painted on the back of the condenser, and represents an imaginary, rather than real view of the Aqueduct Bridge at Little Falls, over the Mohawk River, with Locks and other circumstances attending Canals."--from source text.
