Original caption
South-eastern view of Frederick City - The above shows the appearance of Frederick City as it is entered by the railroad connecting with the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad three miles distant. The large building on the right is the Ladies' Academy of the visitation of B.V.M., erected in 1853. The tall steeple a little to the left is the new Catholic Church: the Novitiate S.J., a large structure, stands on the opposite side of the street from it. The New Evangelical Lutheran Church is seen in the central part. The spires of the Presbyterian and the German Reformed Churches appear on the left.
