Retired British Naval officer Basil Hall visited Columbus as it was still being laid out, while on a tour of the Southeast in the spring of 1828. He produced this image, the first known view of the streets of downtown Columbus, using a camera lucida. The camera utilized a prism to reflect a scene onto a drawing surface so that the artist could trace it.
This rare black and white transferware cup plate, circa 1830, features a decoration based on Hall's image.
