Located in both the Bridgeport and New York City metropolitan area and on the banks of the Long Island Sound, Norwalk, Connecticut has a rich history and distinctive culture and was originally settled in 1649. By the time of this publication, the region had grown considerably and developed a distinct culture shaped by its location and the influx of Eastern and Western European immigrants who established neighborhoods and communities in the city based on cultural lines, many of which exist to this day. Norwalk's economy was largely tied to commercial fishing and oyster cultivation, and the first steam-powered oyster dredging ship sailed out of Norwalk Harbor in 1874.
As the United States approached the turn of the nineteenth century, the nation had experienced a significant period of prosperity during the so-called Gilded Age. The region played a pivotal role during the American Revolution as British Warships occupied Long Island Sound in an attempt to thwart the Continental Navy. The Battle of Norwalk was a series of skirmishes between the Continental Army and British forces who conducted raids along the Connecticut coast, which are also collectively known as Lord Tyron's Raid.
Bird's eye perspectives were widely popular during the nineteenth century and featured prominent civic buildings and other economic attractions to entice residents and merchants alike. Landis & Hughes were New York City-based cartographers who were known for their classical style and distinctive aesthetic. This panoramic map is truly a piece of cartographical history that transports the viewer back in time.
