This Cotton Belt Route railway map, printed in 1913 by the Matthews Northrup Works of Buffalo, New York, is a cartographic representation of the St. Louis Southwestern Railway Lines. The map is printed on two sides, with one side depicting the railway in the context of the entire eastern United States and the other side providing a more focused view of the route.
The Cotton Belt Route ran between St. Louis and eastern Texas, with its primary terminus in Dallas-Fort Worth. The majority of the railway's path is through Arkansas. The map is an important resource for understanding the geographical context of this important transportation route.
It is a valuable addition to any collection of historical transportation maps.
Printed on both sides. Deaccessioned from the Caltech Department of Engineering and still bearing an ink stamp from the institution.
