Produced and published by T.M. Fowler, this stunning birds eye perspective shows Peckville, Pennsylvania, during a period of significant growth and transformation as the nation neared the turn of the twentieth century. The region had experienced prosperity in the nineteenth century spurred on by the anthracite coal mining industry and the transportation of the fuel on the Lackawanna River to major markets in New York and New Jersey. Peckville is located within the borough of Blakely and is only a few miles from Scranton, the sixth-largest city in Pennsylvania. Lackawanna County is the only county established following the conclusion of the Civil War and the last to be established in Pennsylvania.
Birds eye perspectives were widely popular throughout the latter portions of the nineteenth century until the 1920s, when advances in aviation and photography made them obsolete. Because they bear such a distinguished style and unique aesthetic, they are immediately recognizable and transport the viewer back in time, creating an indelible bond between the past and present. They served as marketing materials to attract residents and merchants alike and featured prominent civic features, economic opportunities, and geographic benefits. Fowler was among the most prolific producers ion panoramic maps, and his career spanned more than five decades.
This is an authentic piece of American cartographical history that captures a distinct moment in time for Northeastern Pennsylvania. The United States was enjoying widespread expansion due to the industrial revolution, and numerous immigrants from abroad were establishing communities throughout Northeast Pennsylvania.
