I noticed a wonderful image on the blog, 19th Century Women this morning and wanted to share the post. If you scroll down on that post, you can also view several paintings by the artist Ethan Allen Greenwood. Barbara, the author of the blog, has some wonderful images of everyday life in 19th century America to view. I have posted my favorite here, a lovely image of travel by stagecoach in New Jersey painted by the artist Pavel Petrovich Svinin. In 1843, Julia will travel to the Catskill Mountain House and I’ve envisioned her journey looking something like this painting.
