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
--1903 map drawn by C.N. Dry and published by
Charles Hart Litho.
--1888 map drawn and published by E.S. Glover and Shober &
Carqueville Litho. Company
We're pleased to
make available two panoramic maps of the city of Anniston.

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.
