Illustrated by renowned American cartographer John H. Renshawe, this depiction of Mount Rainier, which is sometimes referred to as Tacoma, was produced for the Department of the Interior in 1914 and bears a classic aesthetic and stately design that immediately transports the viewer back in time creating an indelible bond between the past and present. Renshawe produced multiple works during this period for the Department, documenting significant national landmarks across the nation. His panoramic views were illustrated before advances in aviation technology made aerial photography possible and display the considerable efforts that were made during the early twentieth century to document the United States' most iconic natural features.
Located some 60 miles southeast of Seattle, Mount Rainier remains one of the most iconic mountains in the Pacific Northwest and the tallest in the Cascade Range. Rainier is home to 26 glaciers, and two volcanic craters at the top of the mountain remain distinct geologic features. The most recent eruption of Mount Rainier was in 1894. Noted early naturalist John Muir climbed Rainier in 1888 and advocated for preserving its natural features. In 1899 President McKinley dedicated the Mount Rainier National Park, making it the fifth recognized in the United States.
The mountain attracts skilled mountain climbers from across the globe who attempt a three-day climb to reach the summit, which is more than 14,000 feet. The ascent is difficult and considered a challenging climb that should only be attempted by skilled climbers who can handle a wide variety of climbing conditions.
