Mabel Dwight was known for her keen observation of the absurdity of the human condition; she is best known for her lightly satirical depictions of life in New York City. This particular lithograph depicts the New York Aquarium when it was located in Battery Park. The Aquarium lasted in the Battery until 1941, when it was relocated to Coney Island because of the construction of the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel.
