Because they do not rely on accurate geographical representations, they often embellish notable buildings and geographic features. Burleigh was an early adopter of the style and one of the nineteenth century's most prolific birds-eye perspective producers.
His works are contained in the Smithsonian, Boston Library, and Library of Congress, and he is considered one of the prolific cartographers of the style. This depiction of Springfield shows the city in a period of significant growth and transformation both economically and culturally.
