Description


An attractive 1857 U.S. Coast Survey maritime map or nautical chart of Norfolk Harbor, Virginia. Centered on the Elizabeth River, this map covers the adjacent towns of Norfolk and Portsmouth Virginia. It includes the Portsmouth Navy Yard as well as Washington Point. Both cities are important anchorages near the entrance to the Chesapeake Bay.

The Triangulation for this map was completed by E. Blunt. The Topography is the work of J. Seib. The Hydrography was completed by a party under the command of J. J. Almy. The whole was compiled under the superintendence of A. D. Bache, one of the most influential and prolific heads of the U.S. Coast Survey. This map was published in the 1857 edition of the Superintendent's Report.
