'Philadelphia in the Romantic Age of Lithography: An illustrated history of early lithography in Philadelphia with a descriptive list of Philadelphia scenes made by Philadelphia lithographers before 1866' by Nicholas B. Wainwright was a scholarly publication from 1958 and nearly 300 of the illustrations are available at Philadelphia's The Library Company.
I would not have predicted that I would actually go through each of the images, nor find the overall collection particularly fascinating. But:
"In them one sees the appearance of the city in remarkable detail. Since many of the lithographs were made for advertising purposes, there is naturally a fine range of shops, hotels, and industrial establishments. There are also a variety of public buildings and churches, and genre scenes of interest." [Walter Muir Whitehall book review pdf file p.182]The collection also serves as an exhibition of all manner and style (and quality) of lithographic illustration from the first half of the 19th century; so, despite my not knowing Philadelphia from a bag of wheat, I found this collection to be an absorbing timesink. In some cases further notes about each image can be (convolutedly) found through the wolfPAC database (linked from the main page above).
