Washington Circus, 1830

Northeeast corner of Fifth and Buttonwood Streets, Philadelphia, Pa.

The painting shows a mixture of red brick and wooden clapboard buildings. The Washington Circus is the latter. It is the largest building in the scene. There is "Ticket Office" on the front of the edifice and the U. S. flag flies from the roof. Eleven figures are on the sidewalk and a solitary horseman is in the street. The many trees are bare of leaves.
