The Tredegar Works, Richmond, VA

An 1865 colored lithograph published in Washington, D.C., depicts the Tredegar ironworks in Richmond. Though the factory complex shown here is fairly accurate, the James River and Kanawha Canal in the foreground is presented as being much wider than it was in reality.
