An absolutely stunning work of wall art for lovers of America's breathtaking Northwestern metropolis! Take a step back in time to a golden age in the history of the Emerald City, the 1890s, when King County emerged as a hub of the lumber trade. This is a breathtaking reproduction of an 1891 lithograph, which was originally drawn by noted map artist Augustus Koch, and published as a print by Chicago's Hughes Litho Co. 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 sprawling King County laid out before your eyes from high above West Seattle, you get all the geographical and man-made landmarks of the era: the wharves and docks of Elliott Bay; the newly-rebuilt downtown core after the great fire of 1889; Lake Union, Lake Washington, Salmon Bay and Smith's Cove; and over 100 individual buildings numbered with legend! And off in the distance, you can see the beautiful wooded countryside and the cascade mountains into the distance 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 Seattle alive again! Perfect for home, office, classroom, bar, restaurant, or public facility.
