Ohio History Connection Archives/Library
Description: This elevated view of the town of Fostoria, in Seneca County, Ohio, shows a general view of the houses and businesses of the town. Streets, public buildings and churches are labelled. Bird's eye view drawings like this one were popular in late-19th century America. As the country became increasingly urbanized, many towns had pictures such as this one drawn as an expression of civic pride. Also note the plumes of smoke rising from small manufacturing plants and the three railroads running through this rural-seeming town. View on Ohio Memory.
