An absolutely stunning work of wall art for lovers of America's beloved Bayou town! Take a step back in time to a golden age in the history of N'awlins, the 1880s, when the thriving port was coming into its own as a center of commerce and culture in the emerging modern industrial age. This is a breathtaking reproduction of an 1885 Currier & Ives print that graced the walls of hundreds of homes and offices back in the day. 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 and colored in a studio with endless detail. With the sprawling city laid out before your eyes from the edge of the Mississippi to the coast of Lake Pontchartrain in the distance, you get all the geographical and man-made landmarks of the era: City Hall, Lafayette Square, Canal Street, Opera House, Jackson Square, St. Patricks Cathedral, Temple Sinai, Annunciation Square, the Sugar Exchange, the French Cathedral, the Spanish Fort, and all the action on the docks and the river, with the glorious steam ships motoring up and down the mighty waters. 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 New Orleans alive again! Perfect for home, office, classroom, bar, restaurant, or public facility.
