Birds' eye view of New-Orleans / drawn from nature on stone by J. Bachmann.

Reproduction bird's-eye view map of New Orleans, Louisiana drawn from nature on stone by J. Bachman in 1851.

This map captures the city as it appeared just ten years before the start of the Civil War, and just after telegraphic communication with St. Louis and New York City was established, in 1850. The New Orleans & Jackson Railway began in 1851, the same year that this map was published. It was the first railway northward from New Orleans.

Delicately tinted, this charming map depicts lively steamboat traffic along the Mississippi River.
