Niagara Falls became popular with tourists after the end of the War of 1812, when ferry service was first offered and paved roads and hotels constructed. Henry Wellge drew this panoramic view for Beck & Pauli, publishers, at a time when the tourist trade was well developed. The American and Horseshoe Falls are prominent in the foreground, with the city’s many hotels and mills depicted in detail in the background.
