The seat of Oneida County at the base of the Adirondack Mountains and the banks of the Mohawk River, Utica remains an iconic city emblematic of upstate New York. Produced and published by Herman Brosius, this birds eye perspective captures a significant moment in Utica’s rich history as the city experienced a population boom and great prosperity in the years following the conclusion of the American Civil War. Panoramic maps were widely popular during the mid-nineteenth century until the early portions of the twentieth century. They served as marketing materials to attract residents and merchants alike and featured prominent civic features and economic opportunities.
Utica became an essential stopover for immigrants traveling from Syracuse to Albany and by 1873 had become a significant hub for the global textile trade with numerous manufacturing centers attracting immigrants from Western Europe, England, and Ireland eager for work in the factories and plants that were expanding as the United States began the so-called Gilded Age. This era was marked by growth in steel manufacturing, and demand for mass-produced goods allowed many cities in the Northeast to expand their local economies. Utica’s location on the Erie and Chenango Canals furthered the economic expansion and allowed the transport of anthracite coal from Pennsylvania to reach major markets in New York City.
This is an authentic piece of American cartographical history with a distinctive aesthetic and classic style that immediately transports the viewer back in time, creating an indelible bond between the past and present.
