Produced and published by one of the most prolific American mapmakers of the nineteenth century, Albert Ruger, this distinctive birds-eye perspective bears a signature aesthetic. Located on the southern portion of Lake Winnebago, Fond de Lac was founded by French settlers who arrived in the eighteenth century. The town was experiencing a relatively large population growth by the 1860s as the completion of a rail line in 1852 increased access. Immigrants sought work in the thriving milling and lumber industries spurred by access to the lake. These groups founded communities based along cultural lines, many of which exist to this day.
Birdseye perspectives were widely popular during the nineteenth century and served as marketing materials to promote prominent civic and geographical features to attract industrialists, merchants, and residents alike. Fond de Lac was first incorporated in 1836 as part of the Wisconsin territory and bears a distinct culture influenced by French, German, and other Western Europeans who settled the region during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Fond de Lac was considered for becoming the State Capital though the efforts failed, and Madison was ultimately awarded the title.
By 1867 the town was developing a distinct culture as the nation rebounded following the conclusion of the Civil War. This map has a classic style unique to Ruger, who paid careful attention to details and artistic flourishes make this characteristic of his work. This map immediately transports the viewer back in time, creating an indelible bond between the past and present.
