Plate 16 from the 1889 Hopkins Atlas of Nashville. This plate depicts East Nashville or Edgefield, just east of the Cumberland River. The industrial area along the river as well as residential neighborhoods along Main, Woodland, and Russell streets. Churches include St. Ann's Episcopal, Edgefield Presbyterian, Christian Church, St. Columba Roman Catholic Church, and Payne Methodist Episcopal. The Louisville and Nashville Railroad (L & N)runs through the plate.
Griffith Morgan Hopkins was born around 1836, however the exact date is unknown. He first began printing maps in 1857 and continued until his retirement in 1900. He founded G. M. Hopkins & Co. with his brother Henry W. Hopkins, and together they produced many city and county atlases, primarily of the northeast, from their shop in Philadelphia. Their 1908 Atlas of Nashville is a fine, block-by-block depiction of the town in a period of growth to a modern urban center. G. M. Hopkins & Co. continued on after the founders' retirements until the Great Depression ended the demand for their atlases. The company was sold to the Franklin Survey Company in 1943, with the name intact, due to its association with quality.
