Fine early map of the Harbor at Memphis Tennessee, from and ealry government survey seeking ot locate a naval shipyard in Memphis.

The map extends from above the mouth of the Wolf River to South Mempghis and from a block east of Front Street to the Arkansas bank.

The short-lived yard was created largely as political pork project to mollify Southerners and Westerners who saw little regional benefit in the maintenance of a strong naval force.

The map is quite scarce. No copies have appeared in any recorded auction or dealer catalogue.

Condition Description
Several ink stains in the image.
