Produced by one of the early pioneers of the bird's eye perspective, Albert Ruger, this depiction of Saginaw City was completed only two years after the conclusion of the American Civil War and illustrates the town in a period of significant growth and prosperity as the nation recovered and a large diaspora of Americans left the south for economic opportunities in the Midwest. This, combined with the start of the Industrial Revolution in the United States, brought many manufacturers to Saginaw City, and the city was experiencing a boom and became the largest in the area.
Ruger produced bird's eye perspectives from his Chicago-based office and would become one of the most influential artists creating these maps, which served as marketing materials and featured prominent civic features, economic opportunities, and natural attractions to entice residents and merchants alike. The unique perspective and distinctive aesthetic immediately transport the viewer back in time, creating an indelible bond between the past and present. Saginaw's rich history dates back to its founding days by French traders and fur trappers who established markets and camps starting in the late seventeenth century. These communities would languish until a boom in the lumber industry began in the mid-nineteenth century.
Ruger's work contains incredible detail and a signature style that would become one of the most popular styles during the mid-nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Saginaw became a central hub for rail transportation during this time period, and the city maintains a distinct history and culture.
