An absolutely stunning work of wall art for lovers of the glorious Great Lakes town, Cleveland, Ohio! Take a step back in time to a golden age in the history of C-Town from way back in the 1870s, when it was known as "The Metropolis of the Western Reserve", and was emerging as one of the greatest manufacturing centers of the modern industrial age. This is a breathtaking reproduction of an 1877 lithograph by Chicago's Shober & Carqueville Company that now resides in the Library of Congress. The 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 with endless detail. With sprawling Cuyahoga County laid out before your eyes from the edge of Lake Erie, you get all the Chicago geographical and man-made landmarks of the era: the portlands and warehouse docks in the foreground; The Flats; the Cuyahoga River; all the historic churches including the First Presbyterian "Stone Church"; the sprawling residential neighbourhoods jutting off from the downtown core; and all the suburban and exurban farm land as far as the eye can see. 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 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 Cleveland alive again! Perfect for home, office, classroom, bar, restaurant, or public facility.
