Published in 1896 by prominent and prolific American mapmaker George Franklin Cram, this illustration depicts Idaho six years after achieving statehood and in a period of considerable growth and transition. Cram was the first American cartographer to publish a world atlas, and his works remain some of the most accurate and unique productions from the late 19th century. The population of the state had doubled since achieving statehood, and its economy was transforming.
Idaho had long been a stopping point for eager prospectors headed west in search of fortunes in mining. By the late 19th century, it had seen the establishment of numerous towns and cities enable by the expanding national railroad systems. This map shows the routes and planned lines for the state, which allowed the export of silver, the primary driver of Idaho’s economy at the time. The region had also been defined by the fur trade of the early 19th century, and agriculture also allowed expansion in the state.
The state had been explored during the Lewis and Clark expedition in the early 1800s, and French fur traders established many towns in the 1700s. By the time of this publication, Idaho recognized women’s suffrage, and the state was experiencing a massive influx of Irish, German, Basque, African, and Chinese immigrants. The end of the 19th century saw Idaho moving into a more refined and modern era. The distinctive aesthetic of this piece of American cartographical history immediately transports the viewer back in time.
