Produced and published by one of the earliest proponents of the style, Albert Ruger, this stunning depiction of Durham shows the city in a period of significant transformation and growth as the nation recovered in the decades following the conclusion of the American Civil War. Ruger was prolific throughout his career and produced some of the most enduring birds eye perspectives of the nineteenth century. Ruger’s early works laid the groundwork for others who would go on to continue his legacy into the 1920s, when advances in aviation and photography made the style obsolete.
Birds eye perspectives bear a unique aesthetic and distinctive style that immediately transports the viewer back in time, creating an indelible bond between the past and present. Durham’s classic architecture dates to the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and remains an enduring part of its rich history and distinct culture. Durham became the hub of North Carolinas tobacco trade after the Civil War ended, bringing significant prosperity to the Raleigh-Durham-Cary triangle. By 1891 a thriving textile industry further spurred economic prosperity and attracted residents from across the South who built communities based around cultural lines.
The prominence of the railroad in this map illustrates the significance the line had to the city and region’s local economy. Goods were able to flow from the more agrarian Western portions of North Carolina to major markets in the Northeast and Europe. This authentic piece of American cartographical history captures Durham in an iconic part of its rich legacy.
