Genuine Antique Hand Colored Map


Maker: Richards.

Antique map of part of East Providence, RI, Rhode Island, from Richards Standard Atlas of the "Providence Metropolitan District" volume 2, 1917. North is oriented to the left except in the inset. Includes "The Mountain Ledges" park system, St Marys Seminary, Silver Spring Golf Club, Pomham Club, an inset map of Crescent Park (a leisure park featuring a dance hall, theatre, dining hall, and more) with Bullocks Point and Bullocks Cove, and many residences and manufacturing companies. At left there appears to be a later addition, probably stamped onto the page, to update the atlas. These maps were created for tax and insurance purposes and the buildings are coloured by type- the color key was only included on the index, but yellow is wood, red (or pink) is brick, and brown is stone. Large numbers in red designate wards. Overall good antique condition with mild surface soiling at the paper edges, leather tab at left, and a stain at right where the leather tab touches. Paper is toned overall. Some tiny indents in the paper from the page being handled for over 100 years. Measures approx. 22 x 32 inches to the page edges. **SOLD**
