Andrew Stevenson produced three views in this Floral Border Series, this, New York from Brooklyn Heights, and View of Governor's Island.  The Floral border appears to be a form of Rose.  These views come only in plate form and usually just 8.5 or 9 inches wide.   

The Lake George and Adirondack area in New York had a prominent role in famous battles of the French and Indian Wars as well as the American Revolution, but prior to that it was an important artery of travel for the American Indian. For them, it formed the connecting link in the main water route between the Hudson River and Lake Champlain. The Iroquois, who were continually at war with the Algonquins of the north, appropriately call it An-di-a-ta-roc-te, “There Where the Lake Is Shut In.”
