Cityscape that depicts a view of Broadway at Grand Street in New York City; the large building on the right is the Broadway House.
This view of Broadway at Grand Street shows flags at half-mast and festoons of black mourning fabric on Broadway House, which at the time was the political headquarters of the Whig party. A banner inscribed "A Nation / Mourns Its Loss" and the military parade corssing the intersection suggest that the scene represents the funeral of either Henry Clay or Daniel Webster, both held in 1852.
Gift of Samuel V. Hoffman
