Produced and published by the prominent Henderson Lithographic Co, which was formed in Cincinnati in the early 1880s, this stunning depiction of the iconic American city shows in a time of tremendous prosperity and development. Illustrated in the wildly popular bird’s eye perspective style, this unique illustration immediately transports the viewer back in time and creates a bond between past and present. This style would remain popular until the 1920s, and the Henderson Lithographic Co was known for these large scale prints. They produced these as marketing materials to attract industrialists and workers seeking opportunities in the thriving manufacturing industries the city had become known for in the late eighteenth century.
By the turn of the century, Cincinnati had become one of the most economically important and densest cities in America. It had become an important industrial, literary, political, and educational center for America and the Midwest, respectively. By the 1880s, the city had 300,000 residents and was thriving as the industrial revolution was in full swing. Cincinnati exported more iron in the late eighteenth century than any other American city, and this spurred the financial growth of the city.
Its proximity to the Ohio River allowed its bustling industries accessible trade routes in and out of the city, and it was the sixth-largest American City by 1850. Cincinnati’s prominence would continue throughout the twentieth century, and it would continue to grow and develop. This unique illustration is an authentic piece of American cartographical history with a distinct aesthetic.
