A collaboration between three of the most well-respected bird's eye perspective producers, Albert Ruger, J.J. Stoner, and Beck & Pauli, is a rare occurrence. However, the trio worked together to create this panoramic map that displays Akron from the Southwest and depicts the city in a period of significant growth and transformation during the late nineteenth century. The city grew following the conclusion of the American Civil War as residents flocked to towns and cities across the Midwest, eager for opportunities in factories and mills that were providing steel, lumber, and other goods for larger markets like New York City, Chicago, and San Francisco.
Akron is the fifth largest city in Ohio and remains an important manufacturing hub for the region and was first settled in 1811 and was first incorporated as a city in 1865. By the time of this panoramic map's publication, Akron had grown extensively and became known for a diverse collection of neighborhoods and communities that celebrated shared cultural heritages brought from countries in Western Europe, as well as Poland and Germany, which continued to shape the city's cultural fabric. Bird's eye perspectives were produced to entice residents and merchants alike looking for opportunities.
Panoramic maps also highlighted prominent civic features and natural features. This map bears a distinctive style that immediately transports the viewer back in time, creating an indelible bond between the past and present. As Akron developed, productions like this remain essential pieces of cartographical history that display the region's growth and evolution.
