Published some four years after the city was officially incorporated, this stunning illustration of Phoenix immediately transports the viewer back in time and is truly an authentic piece of American cartographical history. The town had been transformed by the arrival of railroads in the early part of the decade, which caused an economic boom and population surge. Phoenix became the territorial capital in 1889 and was becoming a fixture of the American West. Goods flowed into the city via railcar, and Phoenix became a vital trade center for settlers establishing ranches in the rugged desert terrain.
The same year that this map was published, the final leg of the Santa Fe, Prescott, Phoenix Railroad connected the region to the Northern part of the state, andPhoniex ultimately grew more due to the increased access. In 1893 the city had begun annexing surrounding territory and would grow from half a square mile to over two by the century's turn.
Birds-eye perspectives were produced as marketing materials for cities across the nation, and merchants and residents often displayed them in a show of civic pride. Their distinctive aesthetic is immediately recognizable, and they were among the most popular depictions from the second half of the nineteenth century until their popularity waned in the 1920s. The late nineteenth century was a transformative period for Phoenix, and its growth would continue. The dry, arid climate attracted residents coming from across the nation, particularly through the start of the twentieth century.
