William P. Chappel was a tinsmith and amateur painter who created meticulously detailed images of New York City daily life, including street peddlers and swimmers in the East River. The exhibit, which includes nearly thirty items from the Met's permanent collection that are believed to date to later in Chappel's life, showcases urban life in the mid to late 19th century.
