This is a very interesting and rather scarce map of Cleveland, Ohio, showing the city's origins at it's incorporation in 1836. The cartographer, Arthur Suchy, researched the historical records to develop this authentic view of the city at its origins. Expectedly, streets, significant buildings are shown -- City Hall, Old Fort, Light House, Churches, Buffalo Co. purchase, etc. The 20 insets include a view of Cleveland in 1800, the Lighthouse, Columbus Street Bridge, Ships such as Vandelia and the USS Michigan, multiple churches, the Second Court House, etc.
