This bird’s-eye view print of Boston, Massachusetts was drawn by O. H. Bailey & J. C. Hazen and published by Armstrong & Co. Lith. Riverside Press in 1879. Boston had become one of America’s largest trading and industrial centers by the 1870's. An influx of immigrants from Europe and elsewhere prompted Boston to begin a campaign of enlargement. Waterways and ravines were filled in and hills leveled in the effort to accommodate future growth.
The original print of this antique map has been enhanced to give it a clean, crisp overall tone, contrasted by the addition of blue color tinting to the rivers, skies and oceans. This historic map reproduction is printed on heavy-weight museum quality paper using high quality pigment based inks. Several sizes available.
