1840 Phelps & Ensign’s Travellers Map

Wed, 08/17/2011 - 20:22

This map came out of the attic of a 19th century farmhouse. I personally found it, under a ton of other crap. It was under an eve, and probably not handled in decades. The quality is obviously not great, but the map itself is super-cool. I'm amazed at the details, and just how much the country has changed. This map still has Texas going up nearly the entire west coast.
