Genuine Antique Hand Colored Map

1917

Maker: Richards.

Antique map of part of North Providence, RI, Rhode Island, from Richards Standard Atlas of the "Providence Metropolitan District" volume 2, 1917. North is oriented to the right. Includes Wenscott Reservoir, Woonasquatucket River, 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 tear, and a stain at right where the leather tab touches. Some hand written additions in pencil and mild stains at center. 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.
