Description

Detailed early map of New Orleans, with 10 inset views, prepared for the Centennial Exposition in New Orleans.

One of the most attractive maps of New Orleans for the period.

The World's Industrial and Cotton Centennial Exposition was conceived to promote New Orleans and mark the 100th anniversary of the nation's cotton industry. The city's first world's fair opened in what is now Audubon Park on Dec. 16, 1884.

The map is scarce on the market.
