United States Northeast New Hampshire
Unusual circular antique colored lithograph Birds-Eye View map of the White Mountains, New Hampshire, produced by the Boston and Maine Railroad, 1902. Shows views and descriptions of mountains in all directions from the top of Mt. Washington. There's a magnificent sketch of the buildings at the top and the railroad line going from other areas to the top of the mountain. Shows Mount Washington ravines. Area towns are also indicated as well as each mountain peak with numbered keys. Original color. Folding map with its original paper cover. Very good archivally restored condition with hints of folds as issued, two seam separations at fold intersections, professionally flattened and rebacked on light-weight linen tissue. Because of the thin antique paper, it is possible to see the printed text and images that are on the back- this effect can be lessened by framing with a dark colored paper or mat behind the map. Approx. 26 x 26.5 inches.
