Antique map of part of Boston from the Atlas of the City of Boston, Boston Proper and Back Bay, by G.W. Bromley & Co. 1938. This map includes City Hospital (now the Boston University Medical Campus), the South Burial Ground, the Roxbury Canal (this played an important roll to transition Roxbury from farmland to industrial), Washington St, Harrison Ave, Massachusetts Ave, and East Newton St. With property owners names and vibrant original printed color to indicate the types of buildings for tax and insurance purposes (pink is brick, brown is stone, yellow is frame or wood, and blue is iron). Fair to good condition with wear at the edges of the paper, some mild staining, some wear along the fold. This map was backed on fabric after being printed, to make it sturdy. Should frame nicely and imperfections at edges can be hidden under a mat. Measures approx. 23 x 33 inches to the paper edges.
