The Land of Opportunity!

Rare separately published map of the Soo Line, published in 1915 by J.S. Murphy, "immigration agent."

The Soo Line was the Minneapolis, St. Paul and Sault Ste. Marie Railroad, a Class I railroad subsidiary of the Canadian Pacific Railway in the Midwest United States. The line would become known since its opening in 1884 as the Soo Line after the phonetic spelling of Sault.

On the verso of the map is a large statistical table describing in meticulous detail the out put of Minnesota on a county by county basis, with text extolling the virtues of The Great Northwest, Minneapolis and the Duluth-Superior Harbor.

Rarity
