Rare and early view of Cleveland, New York, located on the northern shore of Oneida Lake just north of Syracuse. At the time, the village of Cleveland had a population of about 800 souls -- a bit more than it does today -- and was centered on glass manufacture. The legend at the bottom of the sheet identifies twenty-seven numbered buildings, including the Union Glass Works and the Cleveland Glass Works, both on the outskirts of town. Other labeled buildings include four churches, a school, the station of the New York Ontario & Western Railroad, a hotel, and several other local businesses. Rare. OCLC locates two copies, at the State library of New York and the Library of Congress.
