This reproduction panoramic view of Atlantic City, New Jersey was published by Landis & Alsop in 1900. The Atlantic Ocean resort community of Atlantic City referred to itself as "The Showplace of the Nation" in 1900 with its new Steel Pier. A public library was opened that year and trolley service was extended out to nearby Ventnor. Fancy hotels of massive size, as well as smaller rooming houses, were flourishing throughout Atlantic City including the famous Traymore and the impressive United States Hotel, which took up an entire block between Atlantic, Pacific, Maryland and Delaware Avenues. The resort hotels included luxurious atmospheres with up-to-date amenities.
This bird's-eye view map from 1900 shows Atlantic City's buildings, railroad routes and clearly labeled streets.
