Description


A very engaging 1902 railroad map of the western part of the United States. The map depicts the United States from the Pacific Ocean to New York and Florida and from southern Canada to Mexico. Highly detailed, myriad rail lines throughout this portion of the United States are illustrated and feature innumerable station stops as well. The text, although extraordinarily small, is easily legible. Lakes, rivers, and mountain ranges are included. Five inset maps situated in the lower left corner illustrate Alaska, Yellowstone National Park, the Philippines, Guam, and the Hawaiian Islands.
Publication History and Census
This map was created and published by the New England Railway Publishing Company of Boston, Massachusetts in 1902. Four examples are present in institutional collections at Harvard, the Osher Map Library, the University of California, Santa Barbara, and the State Library of Massachusetts,
