"Windsor, Nova Scotia from the Residence of Judge Haliburton, Author of Sam Slick"
by W. H. Bartlett

Bartlett definitely took artistic liscence here. His caption says that this painting depicts the "Residence of Judge haliburton" but this is not Clifton House. (Bartlett did a wonderful rendition of Clifton House in 1833). This 1836 painting is painted from the aspect of looking down on the Avon River from the vantage point of Haliburton’s property. It is the same view Haliburton would have had. Notice the Windsor Bridge in the lower left corner, not seen in the similar 1800 View of the Avon.
