Minneapolis, Minnesota 1874
George Ellsbury and Vernon Green published several brightly-colored and precisely drawn lithographic pictorial maps of towns in Minnesota and adjoining regions. Their two most important prints are this one of Minneapolis and their companion print of St. Paul.
Ellsbury pictured Minneapolis from the east bank of the Mississippi, with the St. Anthony Falls and its flour mills at the left and the commercial and residential districts of the city in the center and right.
