An absolutely stunning work of wall art for lovers of America's magnificent Cradle of Liberty - Boston, Massachusetts! Take a step back in time to a golden age in the history of Beantown, the 1890s, when the town had rapidly become one of the prime centers of commerce and industry on the continent. This is a breathtaking reproduction of an 1899 illustrated commercial print drawn by the hand of local mapmaking professional Albert E. Downs. The bustling city of the era is brought to life from a bird's-eye perspective, sketched in outline while hovering above in a balloon basket, then completed in studio afterwards with endless detail. With all of Boston proper and the sprawling towns and lands of Suffolk County laid out in the distance, you get all the geographical and man-made landmarks of the era: the wharves of Boston Harbor; Boston Common; the Charles River and Cambridge; the rail yards; Boylston Street; Copley Square; Back Bay; the State House; Faneuil Hall; the Exchange Building, Ames Building, Tremont Building, and everything else as it appeared back in that long-lost turn-of-the-century era. You'll be amazed at how different, yet similar, it all was back then, in that amazing time! 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 landmark labels, you won't believe how amazing this huge poster print 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 Boston alive again! Perfect for home, office, classroom, bar, restaurant, or public facility.
