An absolutely stunning work of wall art for lovers of the great city of Houston! Take a step back in time to a golden age in the history of the great Texas town, the 1890s, when the thriving metropolis was booming not from oil (that would come along a decade later), but from railways and shipping. This is a breathtaking reproduction of an 1891 commercial wall print that was originally drawn by an unknown local illustrator and published by local printer to highlight the city's beauty. The streetscape of the era is brought to life from a bird's-eye perspective, which was sketched in outline while hovering above in a balloon basket, then completed in studio with endless detail and color. With the city sprawling out in front of you from the perspective of high above White Oak Bayou, you get all the geographical and man-made landmarks of the era. You'll be amazed at both the similarities and differences between today's Houston, and the city in 1891! Below the main panoramic illustration are rare renderings of the exterior of eight classic buildings of the era - Land & Trust Company Bank; HSR's Electric Power Station; A. Hampe Dry Goods; City Hall and Town Market; Harris County Courthouse; Houston Cotton Exchange; C.C. Gibb's, and Planters & Mechanics National Bank. From the steamboats on the river, to the railway lines, to the parks, the roads, the warehouses, the tenements, the bridges, the churches, and more, it's all here - the booming city that was getting set to take the world by storm when oil started flowing in just a few short years. Noted for their sharp detail and unique 19th century style, these aerial maps of the era are absolutely beautiful, bringing both class and history to your wall. Complete with original-font titling and labels, you won't believe how amazing this looks! A rare vintage classic for your wall, printed on premium-quality stock with vivid giclee inks published in exclusive short-runs for enhanced desirability. Bring old-school Houston alive again! Perfect for home, office, classroom, bar, restaurant, or public facility.
