Rare Late 19th Century Map of Baltimore
Rare large format map of Baltimore, which was issued to illustrate Joseph Rippey's rare Baltimore guide book, Rippey's Index Map and Business Guide of Baltimore, Md. Leading business houses and places of general interest . . . in 1888.
The map is color-coded and includes an index of street names and explanation of street numbers. The map shows major infrastructure (trains, street cars, train depots, wharves, etc), forts, parks, cemeteries, building outlines, and public facilities such as schools, churches, and hospitals.
The map and guide are very rare.
