John Bachmann was one of the leading producers of bird’s-eye views in the late nineteenth century, capitalising on the popularity of panoramic views as expressions of civic pride. He was a German immigrant to the United States, where he began his career by producing views of Civil War battlegrounds. The lithographer, Herman Bencke, worked in New York and often collaborated with Bachmann.
