Produced and published by one of America’s most prolific cartographers, Henry Wellge, this unique depiction of Hot Springs, Arkansas, shows the city in a sort of renaissance. Many residents had fled during the Civil War, and roving bands with loose associations to both Union and Confederate forces destroyed much of the town, including the iconic bathhouses. By 1888 the city had been rebuilt and attracted year-round residents who established numerous hotels, businesses, and bathhouses.
Birdseye perspectives were among the most popular illustrations from the latter portion of the nineteenth century until the 1920s when aerial photography allowed what months of illustration work to be done in a single day. This distinction makes these rare pieces of cartographical history and a genuine link to the past. Their immediately recognizable aesthetic and unique style transports the viewer back in time and creates an indelible bond to the cities rich history.
The natural spring water is believed to have healing benefits and has drawn tourists since Hot Springs was incorporated in 1851. The completion of a narrow-gauge railroad in 1875 allowed expanded access to the city, and the population again increased while the rail line also promoted tourism. Home to Hot Springs National Park, the region’s natural beauty and rolling hills have long attracted tourists looking to escape the cold winter months in the North. Wellge’s depiction would have served as a promotional tool to attract residents and merchants alike by featuring notable civic features, buildings, and other attractions.
