Antique map of part of Cranston, RI, Rhode Island, from Richards Standard Atlas of the "Providence Metropolitan District" volume 2, 1917. Includes several sub-plans of areas that were becoming more urban, a few planned changes including roads and the location of the new Providence Water Supply Pipe Line, 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 upper left, and a stain at upper right where the leather tab touches. 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.
