Additional Details

Finely detailed map of Iowa City, state capital at the time, skillfully lithographed by William Schuchman of Pittsburgh. The twelve attractive architectural vignettes represent prominent resident's homes, churches, colleges, and the state capitol building. At left center is the printed trade card of Cook, Sargent & Downey, Bankers & Land Agents; the map was evidently used to endorse their real estate marketing in the expanding town.
