Located on a bluff between the banks of the iconic Mississippi River and Rock River, Moline is the largest city in Rock Island County and one of the cultural hubs of the so-called Quad Cities. This birds-eye perspective published by one of the most prolific American publishers of the style, Henry Wellge, bears a signature style. Wellge was among six cartographers responsible for creating more than half of all American bird’s eye perspectives. This map bears some of his most recognizable flourishes, including bustling industrial activity to highlight economic opportunity. By the late eighteenth century, the city had experienced significant growth spurred by immigrants attracted by work in the thriving mills.
Moline got its name from the French term moulin, which translates to mill town. Its proximity to the Mississippi allowed numerous mills to be established, and the region was initially settled in the late eighteenth century by French immigrants. Following the conclusion of the American Civil War, Moline experienced another period of significant growth. Moline is home to the Iconic John Deere agricultural equipment company, and its operations have been among the most important economic drivers of the city. By 1889 Moline was a thoroughly modern American city with electricity, streetcars, and robust municipal services.
This depiction’s classic aesthetic immediately transports the viewer back in time, creating an indelible bond between the past and present. This is an authentic piece of American cartographical history that captures one of America’s most iconic small towns in a significant period.
