Old Milwaukee - 1920 (Paul McGehee)

"Old Milwaukee - 1920" by Paul McGehee. Milwaukee, the largest city in the state of Wisconsin, was incorporated in 1846, combining the area of three smaller towns. The settling spot for many Germans and Poles, it is no wonder that it is world renowned for its many breweries and its delicious foods, especially varieties of sausage. Perfectly situated as a port city, Milwaukee's water access has made it a commercial hub, especially with its proximity to nearby Chicago, which lies just south of the city along the shores of Lake Michigan. This early 1920 view shows the passenger steamer "E. G. Crosby" on the Milwaukee River, looking south from the Wells Street Bridge. Along the riverfront you see the Manufacturers Home Building, the First National Bank Building, the Marshall & Ilsley Bank Building and the beautifully ornate Pabst Building in the middle of the scene. The Pabst Building was completed in 1891 and was the city's first skyscraper. Built for brewing mogul Frederick Pabst, it stood until its demolition in 1981. As you can see, yesterday's Milwaukee was booming with business and manufacturing. Today, Milwaukee is experiencing a resurgence of construction in the downtown area, and also in tourism with the beautiful RiverWalk, the Milwaukee Art Museum and many other family-friendly destinations. Microbreweries are springing up all over and, after years of commercial decline, "Old Milwaukee" is once again becoming famous for its beer! "Old Milwaukee - 1920" is faithfully reproduced from Paul's original color pencil and acrylic artwork in a limited edition of 2,000 hand-signed prints. Print image size: 10 3/4" x 17".
