Merging the Old and the New: Bird's-Eye Views of America
Between 1850 and 1900, panoramic depictions of towns and cities were very popular in America. University of Michigan School of Information student Corey Schmidt will describe his project to catalog and digitize these bird’s-eye views and also to create an online interactive map. Director of the Clements Library, Kevin Graffagnino will discuss the significance of these unique nineteenth-century depictions of communities throughout the United States. Participants will also have an opportunity to view several original bird’s-eye views from the Clements Library collection. Parking and entrance information: Guests can enter through the North vestibule (glass entrance) which faces Hatcher and is wheelchair accessible. Individuals will need to sign in as they enter the building. Parking may be challenging but look for on-street parking either on Tappan or S. State Street (e-metered) or the S.
