This is an original woodblock print from Harper’s Weekly, June 16, 1860. It shows a lovely view of the then “New” Central Park. Work began on the park in 1858 and was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaud. The park is now located in the center of Manhattan, but when the park was first started it was far from the built-up areas of the city. It was an area that had small farms, industrial use and was sparsely populated. It is 843 acres with a diverse landscape. No one could have known back then just how important the park would become to the city’s inhabitants. The print is in fair condition. It has mild toning, a “smudge” on the right side and is very fragile. The middle where it was once bound has some pinholes. But overall, it is a rare and special piece of history. There is a nice article about the park on the reverse.
