Description


This is a scarce c.1910 tourist map of New England published by the Rand Avery Supply Company. Issued as a tourist map, it depicts the regions along the Boston and Maine Railroad lines (not the Pan Am Railways), and covers from Provincetown north to the Gulf of St. Lawrence and from Nova Scotia west as far as Montreal. Throughout, the map notes cities, towns, islands, rivers, lakes and a host of additional topographical features. Railway lines are marked in red throughout. The map also notes several hotels and resorts along the way. This map, unusually near the top, changes into a bird's eye view perspective to illustrate the sky. An illustration of a hot air balloon is included to divert attention to this change in perspective. This map was published by the Rand Avery Supply Company in Boston, Massachusetts.

Condition


Very good. Minor wear along original fold lines. Minor spotting.
