Produced and published by one of the early pioneers of the form, Albert Ruger, this birds eye perspective depicts Huntsville, AL, in a period of significant growth and transformation during the years following the conclusion of the American Civil War. Ruger’s works inspired other cartographers to adopt the style, and they became one of the most popular cartographic styles of the mid-nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Panoramic maps served as marketing materials and featured prominent civic buildings, religious and educational institutions, as well as cultural and economic attractions. They were geared to entice residents and merchants alike.
Huntsville was founded in 1805 by European Americans and officially incorporated in 1811. After the Civil War ended, Huntsville became an important regional textile milling center, and workers from across the South came to the city eager for work in the numerous factories that were being established. They formed neighborhoods and communities along cultural lines, many of which exist to this day. These small communities would continue to grow as Huntsville became an important regional center during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. During World War II, the US Army established the Huntsville Arsenal in the area. This caused a surge in population as some twenty-thousand workers were needed to construct the housings for chemical munitions and other critical infrastructure.
This is an authentic piece of American cartographical history with a unique aesthetic and classic style that immediately transports the viewer back in time, creating an indelible bond between the past and present.
