Fine Post-Fire Map of the City of Chicago

A scarce folding lithographed map of Chicago, colored by wards, by one of Chicago's foremost 19th-century map publishers.

The map image is bounded by Fullarton Avenue in the north, Lake Michigan in the east, Crawford Avenue in the west, and Forty-Second in the south.

The map shows considerable detail of the railroads and streets, and names some buildings, including railway stations. Parks are highlighted in green.

Condition Description
Backed with thin archival tissue, stabilizing old folds. Ink graffiti in top margin cleaned. Small ink spot under the title.
