Antique map of part of Johnston, RI, Rhode Island, from Richards Standard Atlas of the "Providence Metropolitan District" volume 2, 1917. North is oriented to the left. Includes many plans for building and urbanising the area showing the development from rural to urban, also Neutaconkanut Hill" park, Dyerville Park, and many residences and manufacturing companies. 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 with small tear, and a stain at right where the leather tab touches. Repaired seam separation at bottom. Hand written notes were added in pencil and some stains at center suggest that something (perhaps a bookmark) was pressed between the pages. 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.
