"Bird's Eye View" was a popular cartographic rendering used to depict cities and towns during the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. They show street patterns, individual buildings, and major landscape features in perspective. Preparation and sale of these maps were motivated by civic pride and the desire of the city fathers to encourage commercial growth. Going to great lengths to make these maps, artists would often climb surrounding hills or trees, sometimes even building platforms from which to achieve the "bird's eye" perspective. They also used to take rides in hot air balloons in order to get the proper perspective. To bolster sales of these old panoramic city maps, the artists would often choke town harbors full of ships, include proposed building developments and depict a vivacious, bustling industry.
