Oswego harbor, 1850s

Lithograph of Oswego harbor from the the 1850s. A number of carriages and wagons cross the bridge. One canal barge is being towed upstream while others lie alongside the canal banks. Two steam tug tow barges around the harbour. A number of schooners and brigs dry their sails. To the left of the harbour a paddlewheeled steamboat lies at the wharf. In the distance the lighthouse guards the harbor mouth. All around the harbor are stacks of lumber.
