Between 1871 and 1884 the American illustrator Herman Brosius drew 57 bird's eye view drawings like this, travelling from Texas to North Dakota to Ontario and back again more than once.

This particular view of Brantford points more east than north, with a large vignette of the recently-opened Ontario Institute for the Education of the Blind at bottom right. That gothic-styled beauty was torn down in 1971, and the institution was renamed the W. Ross Macdonald School in 1974.

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.
