The firm of Joseph Stubbs of Burslem, England made this medium blue view of New York’s City Hall after the drawing by William Guy Wall and then published in 1826 by Behr & Kahl. Stubbs made minor changes from that used by Ridgway that also issued plates using this scene. Stubbs used a spread winged eagle on the rim of his American views.
