Published during a time of significant growth and transformation, this depiction of North Carolina's State Capital shows it transitioning from a largely agricultural economy to one based on manufacturing. Birdseye perspectives were produced to attract industrialists and workers alike and were wildly popular during the mid-nineteenth century until the 1920s. Residents and merchants also displayed these unique illustrations in a show of civic pride. Their distinctive style and signature aesthetic immediately transport the viewer back in time and create an indelible bond between the past and present.
As Raleigh recovered in the years following the conclusion of the Civil War, numerous Universities were established, and it became one of the educational centers of the South. As it grew and developed, it became a center for learning and medicine. It also benefitted as railroad expansion increased access, and it became a transportation hub for goods flowing West and North.
This depiction was produced by noted American draftsman C.N. Drie and is one of his earliest works. His distinctive style and use of detailed insights gained him prominence among his contemporaries, and his works are included in the Library of Congress. The Fairgrounds is included in this illustration and is considered the first map to contain its original location. Drie was active for three decades, and his 110-page depiction of St. Louis is regarded as a masterpiece. Drie's depiction of Raleigh as it grew after the Civil War is truly an authentic piece of American cartographical history.
