Beginning with Henry James Warre's view of Oregon City in 1846 and concluding with highly technical panoramas of Seattle and Portland by artists like E. S. Glover and Augustus Koch, John Reps demonstrates what lithographs of Pacific Northwest communities can tell us about the past. The text is illustrated by 44 beautiful, detailed drawings, eight in color.
