A View of Manchester N.H. Composed from Sketches taken near Rock Raymond by J. B. Bachelder, 1855
Printed by Endicott & Co, Published by J. B. Bachelder, New York 1855 - Tinted lithograph by Endicott & Co. The finest and largest of all the early views of Manchester. Few nineteenth century American topographical artists produced town views of the quality of those of Bachelder. He published this example shortly after taking up residence in Manchester in 1854. The fore and middleground are occupied by a rolling New England landscape, with a winding road leading to the town in the distance. The town's contemporary prominence as a manufacturing center is aptly illustrated by the numerous mills that line the Merrimac River. Reps, Urban Views and Viewmakers , 2243 (locates four examples: New Hampshire Historical; Manchester Public Library; Library of Congress; Essex Institute ?Salem.).
