Produced and published by two of the most prominent birds eye perspective illustrators of the 1870s, Adam Beck and Clemens Pauli, this depiction of Brockton, Massachusetts, shows it in a period of significant prosperity. At the time of this publication, Brockton had yet to be officially established as a city though it had been settled by English immigrants as early as 1646. As the nation neared the turn of the twentieth-century technological advances had allowed the city to grow and expand with an underground electrical system, which was the first in the United States.
The region became known for leather working and shoe production and, during the Civil War, became the nation’s largest producer, which would continue until the latter portions of the twentieth century. Panoramic maps served as marketing materials to entice residents and merchants alike and featured prominent civic buildings, religious, cultural, and educational institutions, as well as geographic attractions. By 1878 immigrants from across Western Europe and Great Britain had established numerous communities and neighborhoods along cultural lines, many of which exist to this day. Its location on the banks of the Salisbury Plain River spurred the establishment of mills and factories during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
This is an authentic piece of American cartographical history with a unique aesthetic and distinctive style that immediately transports the viewer back in time, creating an indelible bond between the past and present. Brockton’s rich history is captured in this classic lithographic print as the turn of the century neared.
