Additional Information
 

Produced, published, and illustrated by two of the most prolific American cartographers of the period, this stunning depiction of South Bend, Indiana, shows the city in a period of significant growth and transformation after being officially incorporated in 1865. The arrival of the first railroad in 1851 allowed the city to grow and expand as a cultural and economic center for the entire region. Its location on the banks of the St. Joseph River allowed a thriving industrial economy to begin and spurred on prosperity throughout the latter portions of the nineteenth century. Large numbers of immigrants settled in the area, with many communities of Europeans creating neighborhoods based along cultural lines, many of which exist to this day. The iconic University of Notre Dame was founded just north of the city and remains an enduring part of the area’s distinctive culture. 

Birds eye perspectives were created to attract residents and merchants alike and served to promote civic features, religious and educational institutions, as well as other economic opportunities. Panoramic maps were widely popular during the latter portions of the nineteenth century until the 1920s, when technological advances in aviation made aerial photography a possibility. These maps bear a unique aesthetic that is immediately recognizable and transports the viewer back in time, creating an indelible bond between the past and present. 

This is an authentic piece of American cartographical history that captures the significant transformation occurring across the nation in the years following the conclusion of the American Civil War.
