This bright and colorful panoramic map is filled with interesting and accurate details all beautifully rendered, making it one of the best of its kind in the first quarter of the 20th century. Here we see 'Manhattan', an American Indian term meaning 'Island of Hills', which in earlier times had been a huge hunting and fishing reserve for indigenous peoples, transformed into a modern city replete with skyscrapers and already bearing a strong resemblance to the city of today. A playful border of vintage automobiles adds to the map's appeal.

What can be referred to as modern cartography has been around for over 550 years. Throughout that time an enormous amount of new land was discovered, cities were founded while others perished. International trade and travel became the norm, political borders were ever-changing, and numerous wars were waged. With all that being said, hundreds of thousands of maps were created that show such events and episodes in time.
