'City of Milwaukee', 1874. Creator: Robert Hinshelwood

'City of Milwaukee', 1874. View of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA. 'The name "Milwaukee" carries in its sound the evidence of its Indian origin. It is a modified spelling of "Milwacky", the designation given by the Indians to a small village near the site of the present city, and is said to signify "rich or beautiful land". Like so many of the Western cities that we carelessly call new and young, Milwaukee has a history reaching far beyond the time of written records. Not only are there relics here of very ancient Indian habitations, but the mounds found and opened near the town show unmistakable proofs of the residence of an even earlier race, whose very traditions are now extinct'. From "Picturesque America; or, The Land We Live In, A Delineation by Pen and Pencil of the Mountains, Rivers, Lakes...with Illustrations on Steel and Wood by Eminent American Artists" Vol. II, edited by William Cullen Bryant. [D. Appleton and Company, New York, 1874]
