O.W. Gray. “Philadelphia.”
Philadelphia: O.W. Gray & Son, 1889. 16 x 26 3/4. Lithograph. Original hand color. Very good condition.
A detailed map of ‘Center City’ Philadelphia and West Philadelphia in 1889, along with an inset map of “Outline Map of the County and City of Philadelphia and Vicinity.” The map includes an impressive amount of detail of streets, buildings, train lines, all presented clearly and with lovely hand color. The western edge of Camden is also shown and the inset map shows all of Philadelphia, though with less detail. An attractive and fascinating map of the City of Brotherly Love near the end of the nineteenth century.
