Located at the American and Canadian border, the cities of Port Huron and Sarnia remain an important crossing point for residents of both countries for both professional and personal business across the border. Port Huron lies at the southern tip of Lake Huron, and the construction of the Blue Water Bridge, which was completed in 1938, increased access throughout the region. This depiction by Albert Ru ger in the bird's eye perspective style is immediately recognizable and transports the viewer back in time with its distinctive details and bold colors. Ru ger was a pioneer of the form, which served as marketing materials to attract residents and merchants alike.
The region grew as a manufacturing hub and became an essential part of the burgeoning automotive industry during the early and middle portions of the twentieth century. In 1814 the United States established Fort Gratiot following the conclusion of the War of 1812, and the region grew around this gateway to the Midwest. Though not his hometown, Thomas Edison grew up in Port Huron and sold newspapers in the train depot where this type of map would have been displayed. The years after the conclusion of the American Civil War saw a significant increase in population as residents made roots in the town following immigration from the American South as well as Western and Northern Europe.
Panoramic maps are unique because they were not produced for navigation and are not bound by traditional rules. The form is a key link in cartographical history.
