An absolutely stunning work of wall art for lovers of the great city of Charleston! Take a step back in time to a golden age in the history of the great South Carolina town, the 1870s, when the thriving metropolis was booming in the reconstruction era. This is a breathtaking reproduction of an 1872 commercial wall print that was originally drawn and published by local mapmaker C.N. Drie. The streetscape of the era is brought to life from a bird's-eye perspective, which was sketched in outline while hovering above Oyster Point in a balloon basket, then completed in studio with endless detail and color. With the city sprawling out in front of you, you get all the geographical and man-made landmarks of the era. You'll be amazed at both the similarities and differences between today's Charleston, and the city in 1872! Below the main panoramic illustration are rare renderings of the exterior of two signature buildings, the Court House and City Hall. From the steamboats on the rivers, to the railway lines, to the parks, the roads, the warehouses, the tenements, the bridges, the churches, and more, it's all here - the amazing historic city by the bay. 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 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 Charleston alive again! Perfect for home, office, classroom, bar, restaurant, or public facility.
