View of High Point, Guilford County, N.C., 1913 / drawn & published by T. M. Fowler.

This aero-view print of High Point, North Carolina was drawn by T. M. Fowler and published with copy by J. J. Farriss by Charles Hart, Litho. in 1913. High Point embraced itself as “The Manufacturing Centre of the South” in 1913 indicating a population of 12,000 and listing the area’s sixty-seven factories.

High Point was incorporated south of the Blue Ridge Mountains in 1859 as a dry town holding no barrooms. The agriculture grown in the region included tobacco and cotton as well as fruit, flowers and ornamental trees.

Following the American Civil War interests in High Point changed to a more industrial nature, as textile mills and furniture factories began to emerge throughout the area. Raw materials could be easily brought in to the manufacturers and products adequately shipped out using the Southern Railway’s excellent freight terminal at High Point.

The image includes labeled streets, buildings and railroad routes.
