  Eliza Greatorex   (1820-1897)

 
  THE WHITE COTTAGE, 34th ST. & 11th AVE., 1870. Signed, titled and dated in the plate. (See listing above for more information.) Printed on chine collé and published in 1875. The house was really the Rapelyea Farm House, but was popularly called the White Cottage. Built at the end of the 18th century, it had a fine view of the Hudson River (then called the North River) but the house was in an advanced state of decay by the 1860s. Greatorex rushed to record Old New York before it entirely disappeared. Light foxing in one margin, otherwise in very good condition. A crisp image.
