View of the Aqueduct Bridge at Little Falls

James Eight’s accurate view of the Mohawk River and Little Falls aqueduct, along with several other engravings, graced the margins of a geological profile of the canal published in 1824. Compare this to the similar view in John William Hill’s 1831 painting to see how quickly the area was becoming developed. (Library of Congress)
