View of Cedar Rapids, Linn County, I.A., 1868 / drawn & published by A. Ruger.

This bird’s-eye view print of Cedar Rapids, Iowa was drawn by Albert Ruger and published by Chicago Lithographing Co. in 1868. Cedar Rapids is shown here just after being linked by the Chicago & North-Western Railroad. This valuable railway enabled the town, along the Cedar River, to prosper as a mill and meat packing center.

The community on the west side of the river, known as Kingston, became part of Cedar Rapids in 1870.
