View of Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, P.A., 1888 / drawn & published by Burk & McFetridge.

This bird���s-eye view of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania was drawn and published by Burk & McFetridge in 1888. Philadelphia prospered with its river port location becoming a major trade and industrial center. 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 in the 1800's with the transportation method being first introduced to the community in the 1820's. Philadelphia was served by several railroads that all converged here. Philadelphia was a great tourist destination because of its history and manufacturing center which employed thousands in 1888.

The map from 1888 includes streets, buildings, bridges, piers and railroad routes.
