Canal Dover, Tuscarawas County, Ohio 1899. Drawn by A. E. Downs.

Panoramic reproduction bird's-eye view map of Dover, Ohio drawn by Albert E. Downs and published by T. M. Fowler in 1899. Dover, then called "Canal Dover" was founded where the Tuscarawas River meets the Sugar Creek. In 1825, when the Tuscarawas River was used in the Ohio Canal system, Canal Dover became the tolling station for users. Several mills were established along the river and Dover was on its way to becoming a center for heavy industry. When the railroads came and the canal business declined, the industrial community stayed and thrived. A steel-rolling mill was added in 1867. The city of Dover was incorporated two years after the map was drawn.

The map includes clearly labeled street names with scenes of railroad, carriage and pedestrian traffic. It features top inset illustrations of:
