Batavia is the oldest city in Kane County, one of the collar counties of Chicago, and is part of the Tri-City area. First settled in 1833, Batavia would not be officially incorporated until 1872 and was experiencing a period of significant growth at the time of this publication. As a suburb of Chicago, Batavia enjoyed a period of tremendous prosperity during the mid-nineteenth century as economic expansion spurred population growth across the North, particularly in major cities like Chicago. Its location on the Fox River allowed numerous windmills to be installed and led to the town becoming known as the Windmill City in the late nineteenth century.
Produced and published by Albert Ruger, this birds eye perspective bears a remarkable style and distinctive aesthetic. Ruger was an early pioneer of the form in the United States and would go on to produce panoramic maps of cities and towns across America. Ruger’s maps bear characteristic flourishes and served as marketing materials to attract residents and merchants alike, featuring prominent civic buildings and economic opportunities. Birds eye perspectives were widely popular during the mid-nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, and they are immediately recognizable and transport the viewer back in time, creating an indelible bond between the past and present.
This is an authentic piece of American cartographical history that captures a distinct moment in Batavia’s rich history as the nation rebuilt in the years following the conclusion of the American Civil War and approached the turn of the twentieth century.
