View of Shenandoah, Schuylkill County, P.A., 1889 / drawn & published by T. M. Fowler & James B. Moyer.

This aero-view map of Shenandoah, Pennsylvania was drawn by Thaddeus Mortimer Fowler and published by T. M. Fowler & James B. Moyer in 1889. Shenandoah was a boom town in the 1890's as coal was harvested throughout the region. The valley which Shenandoah stands was rich agricultural farmlands until anthracite coal veins were discovered in the surrounding mountains. Attention in the valley shifted toward mining of the valuable ore. The addition of railroads enabled speculators and miners to flow into Shenandoah to work the mines and enrich the town. Breakers were established in the vicinity of Shenandoah and the town prospered highly with its transportation. The Shenandoah City Colliery began operations in 1862. In 1866 Shenandoah was incorporated as a borough.

The map from 1889 includes labeled streets, buildings and railroad lines. It features inset illustrations of the following:
