Produced and published by prolific and lauded American lithographer JT Palamatry, this stunning bride eye perspective of Columbus shows the city in a period of significant growth and transition following the conclusion of the Civil War some two years prior. Columbus had been a substantial outpost for Union forces during the war, with some twenty-six thousand troops stationed in the city throughout the war. In the previous decade, the expansion of rail lines through the city expanded population and neighborhoods were established throughout, many of which still retain their original cultural heritage.
Founded in 1812 at the confluence of the Olentangy and Scioto Rivers, Columbus became Ohio’s capital in 1816. Columbus was one of the major midwest manufacturing centers during the second half of the nineteenth century and experienced a significant amount of immigration in the late 1860s. German, Irish, and Eastern European settlers flocked to the city eager for work in its many mills, meat packing factories, and other manufacturing plants. The Ohio Agricultural and Mechanical College was founded in 1870 and would later become modern-day Ohio State University.
Bird’s eye perspectives were produced to attract residents and merchants alike by highlighting a city’s notable spaces, civil building, educational institutions, and prominent business. They were also displayed in a show of civic pride. These were among the most popular illustrations of their time, and the distinctive aesthetic immediately transports the viewer back in time. This unique depiction of Columbus is an authentic piece of American cartographical history.
