While T. M. Fowler is well known for his panoramic or maps views of Pennsylvania and north eastern United States cities and towns, producing over 400 of them, he only did a handful of Canadian views, 3 of which were Nova Scotian.
An engraved perspective view of Dublin, as viewed from across the River Liffey. Detailed etching of spires, churches, river and bridges, fortifications, city wall, mill, and tree -lined streets. Two field labourers (one female, one male) are shown stacking grass and plowing land.
A perspective view of Gibraltar during the Great Siege, with several plan-like depictions of the opposing works and showing the Spanish attack that took place on April 12th, 1781, and made to accompany an engraving of the head of George Augustus Eliott, 1st Baron Heathfield, who was governor of the territory at the time. The view is of Gibraltar during the American War of Independence.

The view depicts numbered tents, horses, many battleships, the fort and fortifications, soldiers on foot and mounted, the occasional dog, cannons firing complete with trajectory of attack.
This illustration is taken from Edward Long's 'The History of Jamaica,' and depicts the harbours of Port and Kingston. During the 17th century Port Royal flourished and was the principal Spanish trading port but it was later devastated by an earthquake in 1692, a fire in 1703 and a hurricane in 1722. Eventually the town was abandoned and Spanish Town became the island's capital (until 1872, when it transferred to Kingston). Kingston harbour was considered the most beautiful in the world at this time. A view of the Port Royal/Kingston, Jamaica harbour viewed from its entrance to the south. From this vantage, Port Royal appears possibly on top of the water, and the tombolo forming the Palisadoes seem incredibly narrow, possibly due to the earthquake of 1692.
