Produced and published by prolific American lithographer Henry Wellge, this stunning bird's eye perspective of Ft Worth in 1891 depicts the iconic Texas city in a period of transition and growth. Wellge was a prominent map producer and is among the five American lithographers that illustrated half of the bird's eye perspectives in the Library of Congress. Wellge's maps were some of the most popular illustrations from the late nineteenth century through the 1920s.
Ft Worth's status as a cattle town was in full swing during the late nineteenth century, and its stockyards are responsible for some of the most iconic images of the American West. The Texas and Pacific Railway had been completed in 1876 and provided the vast cattle ranches in Texas greater ease when shipping cattle to northern and western markets, which had grown tremendously in the decades following the conclusion of the Civil War. The rail's arrival transformed the cities stockyards and made it the largest wholesale marketplace for cattle. The railroad also expanded access, and eager workers flocked to the city from throughout the American south.
Bird's eye perspectives were produced as marketing tools for cities to attract merchants and residents. Businesses and residents alike displayed these perspectives in a show of civic pride. Ft Worth developed into a bustling frontier town by the end of the nineteenth century. Still, it would become transformed again by the early twentieth century's oil boom, and this unique depiction is genuinely a piece of American cartographical history.
