Description

Like many of the municipal views of the period, this depiction of Huntingdon is surrounded by a number of vignettes featuring some of the town’s more significant structures, mostly churches, businesses, and private residences. The idea not only provided an attractive boarder for the larger panel, it allowed the publisher, in this instance, C. J. Corbin, to solicit additional fees from the buildings’ owners for the promise of affording them special prominence.
