Published by prolific American cartographer and publisher Howard Heston Bailey this panoramic bird's eye perspective of Syracuse, NY, depicts the city in a period of significant population and industrial growth. The Erie Canal had expanded access throughout the region, and salt mining and production was Syracuse's primary industrial export with the bulk of the salt consumed in the United States coming from the city. The city's population grew fifty percent in the decade following the conclusion of the American Civil War, with nearly fifty thousand residents by the end of the 1870s.
Bird's eye perspectives were produced to display civic pride in businesses and residents as well as to promote cities and increase the population. These productions often featured prominent government buildings, businesses, and other notable region features and possess a distinctive aesthetic that immediately transports the viewer back in time. They were enormously popular in the late nineteenth century and remained so until the 1920s. These unique illustrations were not created as technical map depictions but rather as promotional tools.
Syracuse has remained the educational and economic hub of central New York. The city had been a hotbed of abolitionist politics in the years leading up to the Civil War. While the city did see a decline in salt production following the Civil War, it was replaced by an increase in manufacturing, and new residents flocked to the city in search of prosperity. This bird's eye perspective is truly a unique piece of American cartographical history.
