Bird's Eye Views of Texas

The Amon Carter Musuem in Fort Worth has posted numerous "Bird's-Eye View" maps of Texas cities online. The fascinating maps, which were mainly produced in the mid to late 1800's provided an aerial view of Texas' growing cities, before photogrammetry was ever used.

The maps will be on display at the musuem in an exhibit titled, "Patterns of Progress: Bird’s-Eye Views of Texas" February 18–May 28, 2006.
