Description

Great early map of Akron, Ohio by W.W. Warner, produced under the auspices of the Akron Board of Trade.

The map shows the city divided into wards, with fine plot-level detail throughout the covered area. Some neighborhoods and landowners are named.

The whole map image is surrounded by explanatory text and tables, which paint a picture of a booming town. The list of "Manufactories of Akron" shows 110 factories producing all manner of goods.

Rare. OCLC lists a single map of Akron from 1889, but that appears to differ from the present map.
