Sulman, Thomas

Thomas Sulman (1832-1900) was an English architectural draftsman. He became a specialist in using balloons to produce bird's-eye views (perspective maps) of cities including London, Oxford, Glasgow and New York City. These views, as hand-coloured engravings produced with the help of London engraver Robert Loudan Sr., were featured in The Illustrated London News from the 1860s, and were sometimes produced to a fold-out six foot length. He produced high-level views of some of London's major thoroughfares for Herbert Fry's London: Illustrated by Twenty Bird's Eye Views of the Principal Streets, first published in 1880, and engraved by George William Ruffle (1838–1901) and others.
