A beautiful new version of the Erie Railway Tourist, 1874.

The idea to visit “some place, near or remote, the variety of objects, novel and beautiful, pleases the vision, instructs and gratifies the mind. The wearied masses, worn by cares of many kinds, drop everything of anxiety, and gathering about them their companions, associates, or intimates, set off intent upon rest and pleasure.”

Included in this book are Paramus, Monticello, Callicoon, Ithaca, Eldridge Park in Elmira, Watkins Glen, Niagara Falls, the Genesee River, Chautauqua Lake, Keuka Lake, Penn Yan, and lots more towns. The artist or artists were not given credit for these wonderful drawings of New York’s natural wonders. Restored and reprinted by New York History Review.
