Produced and published by Albert Ruger, this distinctive birds eye perspective shows this iconic Midwest city in a period of significant growth and transformation following the conclusion of the American Civil War. Ruger was an early adopter and pioneer of the birds eye perspective style and helped popularize the form, which would remain widely popular from the middle of the nineteenth century until the 1920s, when advances in aviation and photography made them obsolete. Their unique design and signature aesthetic are immediately recognizable and transport the viewer back in time, creating an indelible bond between the past and present.
Columbia was first established in 1821 and grew rapidly for the subsequent decades. The city was largely unaffected by the Civil War and by 1869 was continuing to grow as immigrants were attracted to the region for opportunities in agricultural processing plants. Union Troops had used the University of Missouri as a regional base which dissuaded Confederate raids or attacks on the city, unlike towns in the surrounding areas. As more Universities and institutions of higher learning were established, Columbia became less associated with agricultural production and is now known for its educational opportunities and geographic location on the foothills of the Ozark Mountains.
Columbia remains known for its architecture and heritage, as well as its natural beauty and proximity to the Missouri River. Throughout the nineteenth century, the town remained an integral gateway to the American West as a crucial stagecoach stop on the Oregon and Santa Fe trails respectively.
