Uniquely illustrated with a more modern aesthetic as a one-off map by E. Koppe, this bird's eye view of Salem, Oregon, is a visually stunning piece of cartographical history. With full inserts of the Marion Courthouse and the State House of Oregon, this depiction of the capital city transports a viewer back in time.
Located in the center of the Willamette Valley, Salem is bisected by the 45th parallel, the halfway point between the Equator and the North Pole. Salem's domestic economy has always relied heavily on agriculture. The Willamette River forms the boundary between Marion and Polk counties and is also responsible for the fertile alluvial soil in the plain. Due to the richness of the land, Salem was a frequent destination for enterprising farmers. It was advertised as the "Land of Milk and Honey," throughout the nineteenth century as settlers moved northwest on the Oregon Trail. In this perspective map, the peak of Mt Hood can be seen as a backdrop for the numerous fields and farmhouses.
While Koppe's illustration lacks the high level of detail often associated with bird's eye view productions, his unique style gives the viewer a sense of the history of the region and its flora and fauna equally. Interestingly, his edition lacks the typical directory of local businesses or prominent merchant's homes, indicating that this edition was produced for less commercial purposes. Little is known of Koppe, and this appears to be his only illustration of a map; a truly distinctive piece of cartographical history.
