One of the oldest municipalities in the United States, Boston remains an enduring and iconic city with a history that is irrefutably intertwined with the United States as a whole. From the first establishment of English Colonies in North America, the Boston area became a hotbed of Revolutionary thought during the American Revolution and would become a critical city following the conclusion of the War for Independence. The city was home to numerous significant turning points during the American Revolution, including the Boston Tea Party, Boston Massacre, Battle of Bunker Hill, and the siege of Boston.
This birds-eye perspective was produced and published by one of the most prolific printing houses in the United States, Currier & Ives, who produced more than seventy-five hundred images throughout the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Panoramic maps served as marketing materials to promote prominent civic features, religious, cultural, and educational institutions, as well as economic opportunities. Immigrants flocked to Boston throughout its rich history. The city maintains many Irish, Italian, and Eastern European communities and neighborhoods established along cultural lines, many of which exist to this day. These productions were widely popular until the 1920s, when technological advances in aerial photography made them obsolete.
This is an authentic piece of American cartographical that bears a unique aesthetic and distinctive style that immediately transports the viewer back in time, creating an indelible bond between the past and present. This map captures a period of prosperity and growth for one of America’s most emblematic cities.
