Mills Engineering drafted this birdseye of Denver [gmap] for the Rocky Mountain News in 1887.

The etching on this one is of an uncommon sort; with broad, lateral channels cut that emphasize the horizontal. It looks visually familiar to me, but I'm not very knowledgeable about printmaking. Perhaps a printer or an artist will be able to tell us more about the process that was used.
