Produced by early American mapmakers Warner & Hanna, this rare depiction of Baltimore shows the City in a unique period in its rich history. By 1797 it was the largest American City in what was considered the South at the time, and its population was continuing to expand by this map’s publication in 1804. Baltimore’s economy thrived during the latter portions of the eighteenth century, and it even grew during the Revolutionary War. The City had become one of the major drivers for the emerging United States. Its location allowed for significant trade in iron ore and other metal manufacturing from the North and agricultural products coming from the more rural South.
This unique city plan bears a distinctive aesthetic that immediately transports the viewer back in time and creates a link between present and past. It also illustrates the cities' immense growth and evolution in the subsequent centuries. During the Revolutionary War, Baltimore experienced no significant battles or military action, which contributed to its flourishing economy in America's early years. The City’s productive harbor was another essential factor in its prosperity. Additionally, advances made in the milling industry allowed Baltimore to dominate the international and domestic flour trade.
City planning and development were still being refined during the beginning of the eighteenth century, and this rare depiction of the process stands as a testament to Baltimore’s rich history. This is a genuine piece of American cartographical history and stands as a legacy to Baltimore's distinct local culture.
