Panoramic view of the city of Akron, Summit County, Ohio 1882. Beck & Pauli, lithographers.

Panoramic reproduction view of the city known as Akron, Ohio looking southwest, drawn by Albert Ruger and published by Ruger & Stoner in 1882. Akron is located along the Cuyahoga River and much of it rests on the Glaciated Allegheny Plateau region of Ohio giving it cold winters and warm to hot and humid summers. Established in 1825, Akron soon prospered with the completion of the Ohio and Erie Canal. The city's history as a rubber capital began in 1869 when B. F. Goodrich started the Goodrich Corporation. The industry had a major part in making Akron the birthplace of the American trucking industry and becoming a central hub for interstate trucking.
