As typical of Hollar’s urban vistas, the views are often staged so as to look at the buildings of the town or city across a river or other body of water, combining natural geography and manmade topography. Many of the prints also contain human figures, including bargeman, people walking along the river, or men riding on horseback. The views within the ‘Prospectus’ are:
