Steel engraving, sheet 260 x 330mm (10¼ x 13") very large margins. View along Wall Street, New York, showing City Hall (Federal Hall) and Trinity Church in the late 18th century. Federal Hall, built in 1700, was the site of George Washington's inauguration. It was also were the United States Bill of Rights was introduced in the First Congress. The building was demolished in 1812 and the site is now occupied by the Federal Hall National Memorial (previously the United States Custom House), built in 1842 to designs by John Frazee. This view is similar to the perspective of Archibald Robertson's (1765-1835) drawing 'View Up Wall Street With City Hall and Trinity Church, New York City' (1796). Diedrich Knickerbocker was a pseudonym for the author (but not artist) Washington Irving, who in other publications gave credit to Robert Hinshelwood. The engravers were George W. Hatch (1805-67), a bank note engraver, and James Smillie (1807-85).
