Colorful and whimsical commemorative map commissioned by Filene's to celebrate Boston's Tercentenary in 1930. Drawn by Raymond Luskin, its cartouche states that it shows "street locations, inns, taverns, graveyards, gibbets and the like with here and there a hint of the costumes and mode of living of the time." Text mimics 17th century English and border illustrations humorously note Puritanical dress codes. Verso is a brochure displaying the many flags associated with the early United States around the time of the Revolution. Map area measures 12 X 18 inches.
