1882 Youngstown Ohio Map On Paper Print


Produced and published by the prolific Ruger & Stoner, this Birdseye perspective shows Youngstown in a period of significant prosperity, growth, and transformation both economically and culturally as the nation neared the turn of the century. Following the conclusion of the American Civil War, the nation was rebuilding, and the demand for coal and steel allowed the city to experience significant industrial expansion. Youngstown had been an important producer of coal throughout the nineteenth century, and the arrival of a rail line to Cleveland in 1856 allowed the industry to expand considerably. By the 1880s, flocks of immigrants had arrived in the city eager for work in the mines and factories and established numerous neighborhoods along cultural lines, many of which exist to this day. Located on the banks of the Mahoning River, Youngstown’s industrial growth transformed the entire region. Birdseye perspectives were widely popular during the nineteen and early twentieth century and served as marketing materials to attract residents and merchants alike. They featured notable civic buildings, religious and educational institutions, and other cultural and economic attractions. Their unique style and distinctive aesthetic are immediately recognizable and transport the viewer back in time, creating an indelible bond between the past and present.This is an authentic piece of American cartographical history that shows the significance of Youngstown to the Mahoning Valley and captures a distinct moment in history as technological and cultural advances transformed American society. Youngstown would continue to grow as a cultural center throughout the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries.Our museum quality giclee print comes printed with archival ink on premium heavyweight matte paper.
