The city of San Francisco was incorporated in 1850, and later grew to become one of the most famous cities in the US. The California Gold Rush in 1848 saw the city's population increase from 1,000 to 25,000 over the course of a year. This map published in 1875 by Frederick Marriott of Britton, Rey & Co. from a drawing by L.R. Townsend, E. Wyneken and J. Mendenhall is oriented with north toward the lower right.

E66 - View of Duluth Minnesota - 1883

Library of Congress

Duluth has maintained growth and prosperity as a port town, with a current city population of 85,618 and metropolitan population of 278,799. Resting on the edge of Lake Superior, Duluth continues to have access to the Atlantic Ocean via the Great Lakes Waterway and St. Lawrence Seaway. Originally inhabited by the Ojibwe, fur traders began acquiring the land, and established their permanence with the 1854 Ojibwe Land Cession Treaty.

Herod's Palace. "Herod's Palace at Jerusalem was built in the last quarter of the 1st century BC by Herod I the Great, King of Judea from 37 BC to 4 BC. It was the second most important building in Jerusalem, after the Temple itself, in Herod’s day and was situated at the northwestern wall of the Upper City of Jerusalem (the Western Hill abandoned after the Babylonian sacking of Jerusalem). Herod lived in it as a principal residence, but not permanently, as he owned other palace-fortresses, notably at Masada, Herodium and Caesarea Maritima." Wikipedia

"The dam was instrumental in the development of Anoka’s early economy which revolved around lumbering and milling. The first dam was built in 1853. Being an earthen dam it didn’t last long. It was swept away in the spring floods. A more substantial dam was built the next year. It was used to power the saw mills and flour mills being built along the banks of the Rum."

"Best engineer by a dam site"

Poirier wearing his design.

While not listed as a manufacturer or supplier on the map index, 1610 W Superior St. was the site of the original Duluth Pack Company store. This is probably due to the fact that the "company" was was a leather and shoe repair store in 1882, and likely located in a different part of town. When French-Canadian immigrant, Camille Poirier, did patent the original Duluth Pack in 1882, his store gained popularity. He soon opened a wholesale store, Poirier Tent and Awning which later became Duluth Tent and Awning and eventually the Duluth Pack Company.

Duluth's Aerial Lift Bridge

In order to create the Duluth Ship Canal, a gap in the sand spit had to be created, which left new island residents (Lake Ave. side of the canal) without a means of crossing to the mainland. In 1892, almost a decade following the publication of this map, a contest was held to solve the issue, but the winner's design was rejected by the War Department. A few years following the contest, and inspired by the Vizcaya Bridge in France, Thomas McGilvray designed an aerial bridge gondola, which was completed in 1905. However, as Duluth's tourism and population continued to grow, the bridge needed to grow as well. C.A.P. Turner designed the current standing Aerial Lift Bridge, which lifted for the first time in 1930. Today, the bridge can be raised to full height (135 ft.) in a minute and is raised nearly 5,000 times per year. Wikipedia

"In 1856, the Settlement Association of the Socialist Turner Society ("Turners") helped to secure the city's future. The Turners originated in Germany in the first half of the nineteenth century, promoted with the slogan, "Sound Mind, Sound Body". Their clubs combined gymnastics with lectures and debates about the issues of the day... " New Ulm Wikipedia

New Ulm was created in Turner values and ideals, with a "city plan reflected those values. The German Land Company hired Christian Prignitz to complete a new plan for New Ulm, filed in April 1858. This master plan for New Ulm expressed a grand vision of the city's future. At the heart of the community stood blocks reserved for Turner Hall, the county courthouse, and a public school, representing the political, social, and educational center of the community... Members obtained the means to support themselves — in harmony with nature — through the distribution of four-acre garden lots located outside of the residential area. Historian Dennis Gimmestad wrote, "The founders’ goals created a community persona that sets New Ulm apart from the Minnesota towns founded by land speculators or railroad companies.... The New Ulm founders aspired to establish a town with a defined philosophical, economic, and social character" New Ulm Wikipedia
