Published during a time of great prosperity and growth in Houston, this stunning depiction shows the city bustling with opportunity. Oriented from a northern vantage point, these unique birds-eye perspectives were produced for merchants and residents to display civic pride as well as promotion for the cities, noting important local buildings, homes, and other points of interest. The late nineteenth century saw the city booming with manufacturing, blacksmithing, and with the largest American port at the time to the South in Galveston, a thriving importing and exporting industry.
As one of the major rail hubs in the South, Houston became a center for finance and oil trading. The decades following the conclusion of the Civil War marked a period of tremendous growth for Houston, and it would eventually become the fourth largest city in the United States. During the so-called Gilded Age, the cities industries expanded, and neighborhoods sprang up through the metropolitan area spurred on by an extensive network of electric streetcars. The end of the civil war saw a massive influx of residents looking for employment in the cities, many thriving businesses.
Birds-eye perspectives were some of the most popular maps from the late nineteenth century until they went out of vogue in the 1920s. Their distinct aesthetic is immediately recognizable, transporting the viewer back in time. As Houston grew in size, its cultural impact on the nation did as well, and this is truly an authentic piece of American cartographical history.
