For any lover of American history, this panoramic map of Washington form 1871 will be the perfect gift. It shows central Washington toward the west and northwest with The Capitol in the foreground, in a low-angle bird’s-eye view, showcasing immensely detailed work of the artists who created it in the 19th century. The map also depicts interesting historical details of the era: that Washington of that time still had dirt roads and lacked basic sanitation, which were an eyesore for most inhabitants. That unhappiness eventually lead to the constitution of a new territorial government for the whole District of Columbia, which immediately started large-scale municipal projects.
