Maker: U.S. Coast & Geodetic Survey.
Black and white antique nautical chart of the waters surrounding Monomoy, Chatham and Nantucket Sound. This is a working chart produced by the U.S. Coast & Geodetic Survey. Shows elongating North Beach after inlet formation east of Minister's Point. Maximum extent of Coast Guard Beach from Eastham. No causeway to Morris Island. Old Harbor Station is at the extreme southern end of North Beach. Includes the Twin Lights and a Coast Guard station on Morris Island. There is a sand bar just off Chatham light from migration landward of old North Beach- seen in postcards of this era. Oddly, this chart does not show the Chatham branch of the railroad. Does show the inland route of the Nantucket Railroad. Includes bathymetric data, as well as information on lights, light vessels, buoys, life saving stations, weather signal stations, and tides. Overall in good condition with some surface soiling, approx. 38 x 27.5 inches. **SOLD**
