Above find a map, circa 1903 of the city of Anniston, Alabama, courtesy the Library of Congress. You can't see much detail on the overall picture, but using technology, it can be enlarged to amazing detail! Were the picture actual size, it would be a thumping 796X428 inches. The arrow in the inset picture points to Temple Beth El on Quintard Avenue.


The Maps                                             
     Panoramic maps of the city of Anniston were constructed in 1887, 1888, and 1903. The maps for 1888 and 1903 are available here for your perusal. The views are drawn as from an airplane, which is mysterious, as flight was still in the future. Actually, the 1903 print itself gives a hint. The artist, C.N. Dry, has drawn himself into the picture, drawing the picture, and is seated somewhere on the southwestern face on the hill behind KMart looking down on the town. We are indebted to the Library of Congress for making these pictures available.

A project of historical proportions!

     You know, we think there is one heck of an A+ school report or project contained in this picture for some enterprising youth. Especially since it takes a little work to actually see the picture, we know you'll really enjoy it if you elect to take the time to install the plugin and wait for the picture to download so you can see how it "used to was" here. Surely, the 1888 picture was commissioned by Sam Noble, though we have no way of knowing that. At the very least, you can bet he admired it very much. It's a real work of art.
