An absolutely stunning work of wall art for lovers of America's legendary city of liberty - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania! Take a step back in time to a golden age in the history of Philly, the 1880s, when the thriving metropolis was a major part of America's rapidly-encroaching modern industrial age. This is a breathtaking reproduction of an 1886 commercial wall print that was originally drawn and published by local printer Burk & McFetridge. 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 in studio with endless detail. With sprawling Philadelphia County laid out before your eyes from the edge of the Delaware River, you get all the Philly geographical and man-made landmarks of the era. You'll be amazed at both the similarities and differences between today's Philadelphia, and the city in 1886! Surrounding the main panorama are beautiful detailed drawings of the exterior of some 40 classic buildings of downtown Philadelphia, extraordinary examples of the architecture of the era - and some of these buildings are still standing today! 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 Philadelphia alive again! Perfect for home, office, classroom, bar, restaurant, or public facility.
