This distinctive Birds Eye perspective of Pittsburg in 1902 shows the city in a time of great transition, growth, and prosperity. Published one year after J.P. Morgan and Elbert Gary merged their steel interests into US Steel, this depiction shows Pittsburgh proud, producing nearly half of all steel produced in the United States, the city was rapidly expanding and by 1910 was the eighth-largest city in America. The Civil War, a quarter of a century earlier, had allowed the steel mills to thrive and set it up for a prosperous future heading into the twentieth century.
Birds Eye perspectives were produced to entice tourists and new residents alike by promoting notable landmarks and prominent buildings and residents. Pittsburgh, in this time, had a great deal of civic pride and was becoming a significant economic powerhouse fueled by steel production. The railroad lines made the city a major hub, and millions of dollars of goods also came through the bustling ports on the Pittsburg River.
This perspective was produced by TM Fowler, who was one of the most prolific American producers of bird's eye perspectives. Fowler's illustrations were very popular with Americans in the late 19th century though the early twentieth. His work mainly focused on Pennsylvania, and he is considered the most prolific mapmaker of the state. Yale University, Pennsylvania State University, and the Boston Public Library all hold Fowler's work in their archives. This distinctive illustration is truly an authentic piece of cartographical history.
