Towns and Cities Philadelphia Pennsylvania
Antique hand colored map of Philadelphia by Gray, published in 1876. Shows streets, railroads, ferry lines, parks, cemeteries, and more. The year 1876 is important in Philadelphia's history because it was the year of their Centennial International Exhibition. Nearly 10 million visitors attended the exhibition and thirty-seven countries participated in it. The buildings and grounds for this fair can be seen on this map on the left side in pink between the railroad depot and Fairmount Park. Most of the buildings built for the fair have been since demolished. The "Explanation" in the lower right corner is in three languages, suggesting that this map may have been made as a souvenir of the fair, particularly because Gray was a geographical publisher based in Philadelphia. Very good overall antique condition with a few minor age spots and some minor, repaired edge tears. Approx. 16 x 24.5 inches to neatline. **SOLD**
