Agricultural Production (Orchards, Rice)

From Statistical Atlas of the United States (1880)

A look at where orchard products (like apples and pears) were grown in 1880's America. The bottom half of the page examines rice production and features an interesting chart of rice prices. As you may expect, rice prices skyrocketed during the Civil War, peaking at $15.25 per 100 pounds in 1866. In 1880, that same 100 pounds of rice would have cost you between $5.50-$8.00.

All prints are on matte, archival, acid-free paper, and all framed prints are framed in satin black wooden frames.

We've done a little bit of cleanup to prepare the image for printing, but this is a faithful reproduction of the source material, and bears any scratches, smudges, or tears that were in the original. How charming!

Note: The botanical watercolors originals are on the smaller side, so we recommend 16 x 20" and below. While larger prints are fine from several feet away, you may notice pixellation when viewing them up-close.
