View of Downingtown, Chester County, P.A., 1893 / drawn & published by T. M. Fowler & James B. Moyer.

This panoramic print of Downingtown, Pennsylvania was drawn by Thaddeus Mortimer Fowler and published by James B. Moyer in 1893. Downingtown was incorporated in May of 1859 along East Branch Brandywine Creek. Named for Quaker Thomas Downing, the town���s early growth was due to its many mills. Its proximity to Philadelphia and Pittsburgh and its excellent railroad access enticed many manufactures to build factories in Downingtown during the late 1800's.

The map from 1893 shows Downingtown labeled streets, buildings, bridges and railroad lines.
