This view, done around the year 1800 by the engraver William Birch, shows Philadelphia's bank on the Delaware River. You can see some of the shipping activity that was so important to the city's development. Look carefully at the picture. How many different ships can you find here? Can you find the American flag in this picture? It also shows a ferry used to transport people and goods from Arch Street over the river to New Jersey. Tell me more about pictures by William Birch!!!.
