Antique 1825 Anthony Imbert Lithograph Print NYC NYFD Fire Dept Engine Parade
This listing is for a rare antique Anthony Imbert Lithograph. It shows a scene from the 1825 Grand Canal Celebration parade in New York City in 1825. The parade was to celebrate the opening of the Erie Canal. This particular lithograph shows New York City Fire Department's Lafayette Company 7 as a horse drawn float. There is a large banner atop the float that appears to be General Gilbert du Motier, marquis de Lafayette, the French military hero who fought with the American Army during the American Revolutionary War. Based on our research, the artist for this piece was William H. Tuthill. The lithograph measures 9 1/2" x 10 1/2" inches including the wooden frame. It is in good overall condition with foxing and creases. There appears to be a small tear on the upper left edge. The bottom reads 'Fire Department Lafayette Company in the middle and 'A Imbert Lithography' on the right. We can't make out what it says on the bottom left. Please see the photos below and contact us with any questions. Don't miss your chance to add this rare piece to your collection!
