Between 1871 and 1884 the American illustrator Herman Brosius drew 57 bird's eye view drawings like this, travelling from Texas to North Dakota to Ontario and back again more than once.

At bottom right of this well-done St. Catharines view is a vignette captioned "City Hall," a probably you might know as the former Lincoln County Courthouse at 101 King Street. Built in the late 1840s, it'd host municipal government until the city's government "temporarily" moved to Clennendan house just north of Market Street in the 1870s, and then to the current city hall at 50 Church Street in 1937.
