Rhapsody in Blue gets a lot of cover images featuring the Manhattan skyline, but I see only two using bridges

On a completely different topic, here's the cover of Lieberson's King Gesar, based on a legendary Tibetan hero whose life is the focus of what is supposedly the world's longest epic poem.

Another skyline and one a bit different.

But wouldn't late 19th century transatlantic lines mostly have steamships ;)
I know that there were sailing ships going from Europe to Chile for guano as late as the 1930s or even later but I think the migrant or tourists between Europe and the US in the 1890s would go by steamships.
Struck by the sounds before the sun,
I knew the night had gone.
The morning breeze like a bugle blew
Against the drums of dawn.
(Bob Dylan)

To me it evokes the original concept of "New World", the Columbus one.   ;)
