The view represents a telegraph line with overhead wires. On the left, the building erected for the Custom House, between 1833 and 1842, on the site of the old City Hall. The adjoining building, 32 Wall Street, was erected in 1824 for the Assay Office. At that time, Wall Street already contained the new Merchants' Exchange building, completed in 1842, most of the banks, together with the principal part of the brokers and insurance offices.
