This 1881 Henry Wellge view of Sherbrooke is everything a B&W bird’s eye view of a city should be: thick with detail, layered with topographic depth, using the most interesting perspetive (in Sherbrooke’s case, westward) instead of defaulting to the north, and having at least one little vignette (C. F. Fletcher’s Spring Brewery at bottom right). This was the first map of its kind that I encountered, and I‘m happy it found me. 

A reproduction available at 16x12" or 24x18" on Epson Enhanced Matte 192 gsm paper printed with Epson UltraChrome XD2 archival ink. Sold in an open edition, unframed. Based on this original public domain image held by the Library of Congress.
