City of Houston (1869). A Perfect Recreation™ of the engraving with original outline hand color. Surveyed by W. E. Wood. Published 1869. 63½” x 71”
This exceptionally rare and very large-scale map is the first comprehensive, detailed map of "modern day" Houston. It shows all existing buildings and the names of their owners; and, it indicates church, foundry, stable, merchant and cemetery locations. An inset of the Original Plan of Houston appears in the upper left corner; the Railroad Map of Texas is included at the lower left along with a chart of distances. The border is lavishly adorned with a portrait of General Sam Houston and detailed drawings of prominent structures including the Old Capitol, Christ Church, Allen Station, the City Stables, Buffalo Bayou Draw-Bridge and the E.S. Perkins residence.
