The Bird's Eye map was a popular & charming cartographic form used to depict U. S. & Canadian cities & towns during the late nineteenth & early twentieth centuries. Known also as bird's-eye views, panoramic maps, perspective maps, & aero views, panoramic maps are nonphotographic representations of cities portrayed as if viewed from above at an oblique angle. Although not generally drawn to scale, they show street patterns, individual buildings, & major landscape features in perspective. Artists, including the prolific birdseye cartographers Albert Ruger, Thaddeus Mortimer Fowler, Lucien R. Burleigh, Henry Wellge, & Oakley H. Bailey would travel town-to-town and, as overhead views in those days were limited to hot-air balloon flights, give the citizens an otherwise-unobtainable perspective. The majority of these lovely old maps were created for Northeastern U.S. cities & towns, with most other regions being represented - although some sparsely.
