Rochester, NY
A Bird’s-eye View
1880 Lithograph



From 1878 through 1881 the H.H. Rowley company (located in Hartford CT.) published fourteen well-drawn and attractively printed lithographs of towns in Massachusetts and New York. Rowley, whoever he may have been, left only a graphic trail devoid of biographical clues, however, all of his views were extremely detailed—even those of such large cities as Boston and Rochester.

Most of the Rowley views were printed from two stones or zince plates, a yellow brown or gray green tone being used for clouds and shadows. This lithograph of Rochester in 1880 was printed by Beck & Pauli in Milwaukee.

This panoramic map shows detailed topography, buildings, bridges, landmarks, neighborhoods... even street names! Use the magnification view to the left to explore the image, but be warned, it does not even begin to show the level of detail that can actually be seen in this large format image.

If you dig this image as much as we do, consider ordering a large reproduction available at Zazzle.com.

The detail captured in this bird’s-eye illustration is absolutely stunning. Not until aerial photography and satellite imagery 100 years later would Rochesterians be able to view their city from such an all-encompassing vantage point—from Highland Park to the steamboats on Lake Ontario.



This gorgeous panoramic map is available in different print sizes from Portfolio (14"x11") to Large format (29"x23") for all of your decorating and presentation purposes.
