Produced and published by the imprint Hughes & Bailey, this birds-eye perspective illustrates Shelton, Connecticut in a period of significant prosperity during the early twentieth century. Oakley Hoopes Bailey was among the most prolific producers of panoramic maps, and his career spanned more than five decades. Bailey’s images bear a signature style and ornate artistic flourishes that are immediately recognizable and transport the viewer back in time, creating an indelible bond between the past and present. Birdseye perspectives served as marketing materials to promote prominent civic buildings and economic opportunities to entice and attract prospective residents and merchants alike.
Originally settled by the English in 1639, Shelton had grown into a manufacturing and milling center by the early portions of the twentieth century facilitated by its proximity to the Housatonic River and the Long Island Sound. The borough was officially incorporated in 1915 and consolidated with the town of Huntington in the same year as this publication to establish the present-day boundaries. Many of the city’s industrial nineteenth-century buildings remain to this day, and revitalization efforts are underway for the historic downtown, including cobblestones sidewalks and significant improvements being made to the area.
This is an authentic piece of American cartographical history that illustrates a period of significant transformation across the nation as technological advances and improvements brought towns and cities into the modern era. Shelton was no different and had attracted numerous residents who established neighborhoods and communities, many of which exist to this day.
