Located at the Tennessee and Ohio Rivers confluence, Paducah lies halfway between Nashville and St. Louis and was expanding rapidly at the time of this publication. The first Americans established communities in 1821, and Paducah was formally established as a town in 1830, giving way to a burgeoning economy spurred by steamboat travel, mills, and factories that harnessed the power of the rivers. The city was experiencing a significant period of growth at the time of this publication, and dry docks for steamboats transporting goods to market across the Midwest were an essential part of the local economy that attracted residents from across the United States eager for jobs in these thriving markets.
Bird's eye perspectives were produced as marketing materials to entice residents and merchants by promoting prominent civic features, notable buildings, and other local attractions. They were widely popular during the latter portions of the nineteenth century and early parts of the twentieth century, and their distinct aesthetic and unique style immediately transport the viewer back in time, creating an indelible bond between the past and present. This map was published by the prolific Krebs Lithographing Company, which produced numerous panoramic maps depicting cities across the Midwest.
This bird's eye perspective is a true piece of American cartographical history that illustrates the growth, transformation, and advances that the United States was undergoing as the nation neared the turn of the century. The industrial revolution was creating significant prosperity during this period, and Paducah was experiencing remarkable growth.
