This panoramic print, indicated from the north, of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania was drawn on stone from nature and daguerreotype by J. Thomas Williams and printed in color by E. Sachse & Co. in 1855. The capital city of Pennsylvania got its start as a trading center and stopover for west bound travelers as they encountered the upcoming pass through the Appalachian Mountains.
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.
