The map is hand colored by wards, and shows streets, railroads, slips, wharves, hotels, churches (by denomination) and a host of other details, including a reference guide for Brooklyn place names. A key on the outside includes over 100 points of interest, place names, distances, etc.

This map was the progenitor of a series of maps issued later by Mitchell, Thomas Cowperthwait, and Desilver, which spans nearly 50 years.
Anice example of Tanner's map, which rarely appears on the market.
