Lithograph done by H. B. Mollhausen for the New York firm of Sarony, Major & Knapp from an early railroad survey. The 11 x 9 inch scene views Fort Smith from across the river with a steamship in the view. The ragged bottom edge indicates it was removed from a bound volume.
In 1853 Heinrich Balduin Mollhausen was named an artist for the government surveys to establish a railway route to the Pacific. He was specifically assigned to the 35th parallel expedition (under the command of Lt. Whipple) which left Arkansas in 1853 and traversed Texas, New Mexico, Colorado and California's Mojave Desert. The Company arrived in the west coast of California (Los Angeles) on March 21, 1854. Likely taken from the United States Pacific Railroad Survey in California, under the command of Lieut. R.S. Williamson, in 1853-54.
