notes: 
Image title in French is printed in reverse above image. Title in German at bottom of image. This perspective view, or "vue d'optique," was a special type of popular print published in Europe during the 18th century. These prints were viewed through a device called an "optical machine" or an "optique." This view is probably of a European town, although it is meant to show British troops occupying New York City after the evacuation of the colonists on September 15, 1776.
