Houston, Texas - 1895
The City of Houston in 1895
The population was around 35,000. But that's misleading, because the City of Houston only occupied the central area of this map.
Most of what you see is rapid development outside the city limits. Sound familiar?
The proposed extension of the city limits (shown on the map) would push the boundaries of Houston all the way to the edge of The Heights (it's first suburb) and take in the area that is now Rice University and the zoo.
Tremendously detailed. All major landowners are shown.
Grab your magnifying glass and get to know the town as it was when the entire population would fit inside NRG Stadium, and still have room for all the folks in Galveston.

The paper is acid free, cold press cotton watercolor with an elegant ever so lightly textured finish. This surface allows the inks to 'bite', reproducing the shading and tonality of the original map vividly, beautifully, and exactly.
The inks are guaranteed color-fast for 80 years, which means you won't need to lay out the extra money for UV glass. You can hang your map in direct sun and it will be just as bright when they are passed on to the next generation it is the day it ships.
It's an instant heirloom. Get yours before they're gone...and get one to give to a friend. He'll owe you!
