Produced and published by the Toronto Lithographing Company in a period of considerable transformation, growth, and prosperity, this stunning depiction of Canada's Capital City bears a distinctive aesthetic and unique style. Birds eye perspectives were produced to market cities across North America to prospective residents and merchants and featured prominent civic and geographic features. Their signature aesthetic immediately transports the viewer back in time, creating an indelible bond between the past and present. This map contains many notable buildings in the margins showcasing the thriving manufacturing and milling industries that were attracting immigrants from the United States, Europe, and rural Canada.
Located at the confluence of three major rivers, Ottawa sustained a vital trade and travel route for thousands of years which continues to this day. Queen Victoria designated Ottawa as the nation's Capital in 1857, and it had been a critical stronghold for the British during the War of 1812. The city enjoyed a thriving lumber market from the 1850s driven by large mills located on the river banks that would eventually become some of the largest sawmills in the world.
In 1886 the city was connected to the transcontinental railroad via lines that connected in Hull and Lachute in Quebec. By 1885 Ottawa was the only city in Canada with an electric grid that served the entire downtown, and it was thriving during the Gilded Age as Canada and the United States raced towards the turn of the century. This piece is truly an authentic piece of Canadian cartographical history.
