Starting at $39.00



This panoramic print of Scranton, Pennsylvania was drawn by Thaddeus Mortimer Fowler and published by T. M. Fowler & James B. Moyer in 1890. Scranton emerged along the Lackawanna River as anthracite coal was discovered throughout the valley. In the 1830's Selden T. and George W. Scranton turned their attention here from agricultural interests to the manufacture of iron. Their method of smelting iron ore using the accessible coal produced in the region was found to be quite successful. In 1840 the Scranton brothers established the Lackawanna Steel Company and began producing rail for the growing transportation system. The family then formed the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad for the transport of coal from all sections of the coal fields.

The original print of this antique map has been enhanced to give it a clean, crisp overall tone, contrasted by the addition of blue color tinting to the rivers, skies and oceans. This historic map reproduction is printed on heavy-weight museum quality paper using high quality pigment based inks. Several sizes available.
