Man Fishing On Wooden “Harlem Bridge, N.Y. 1861.” By George Hayward

An intimate urban view of mid-19th century Harlem with a man fishing on a wooden Harlem bridge somewhere on a coastline in 1861.

In the detailed image below, a Harlem man sits on the railing fishing on a wooden dock with his fishing pole in the water waiting for a bite as a number of sailboats, and a  Harlem landscape clean clear sky.

With the flickering water in the front of the frame, this is a charming mid-19th century tinted lithograph print by master lithographer George Hayward from NYC.

Paper and image display light scattered spotting but otherwise remains clean and well preserved with a fine patina and visual appeal.
