View of Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, P.A., 1887 / drawn & published by Burk & McFetridge.

This bird’s-eye view of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania was drawn and published by Burk & McFetridge in 1887. Philadelphia was founded in 1682 at the confluence of the Schuylkill and Delaware Rivers. The port had a convenient supply of iron ore and an abundance of coal that led Philadelphia to become one of the largest producers and transporters of iron in the nation. This busy port was a major railroad hub as the transportation method was first introduced to the community in the early 1800's. Philadelphia was served by several railroads that all converged here. The Baltimore & Ohio Railroad began a popular passenger service to Philadelphia in 1886.

The map from 1887 includes streets, buildings, bridges, piers and railroad routes.
