Hand Colored Antique City Plan


Maker: Colton

Antique hand colored map by Colton, 1871, of the city plans of Louisville and New Orleans. Showing railroads, street names, canals, rivers, and other prominent landmarks. Reverse side is map of state of Louisiana showing townships, cities, towns, rivers, lakes, land forms, and railroads. The Colton firm refused to compromise quality, choosing to compete for sales in the finer quality international market rather than the inexpensive domestic one. Because of this, all maps were engraved by steel plates rather than by wax engraving which was the most common method used at this time. Excellent Antique condition. Approx. 16 x 13 inches.
