Genuine Antique Hand Colored Map

1866

Maker: Meisel.

Antique, hand colored city planning map showing part of downtown Boston, near the modern day Aquarium, Harbor Towers, Norman B. Leventhal Park, and Boston Harbor Sailing Club. This map shows the initial land ownership and new street layout including High Street, Purchase Street, Belmont Street, and Oliver Street. Published in 1866, it shows the landowners at that time and the elevations and street layouts with new street layouts and elevation drop superimposed over the old. The changes show on this map are now nearly gone and barely recognizable. This map shows the cutting down of Fort Hill by up to 50 feet. New roads are highlighted in a light orange-tan color. Very good antique condition. Approx. 29 x 39 inches to the neatline. **SOLD**
