A large, detailed and very attractive early twentieth century map of Philadelphia and neighboring Camden (N.J.). E.P. Noll & Co. (“Map Publishers & Manufacturers”), located on North Sixth Street, was the leading Philadelphia cartographic firm of the period, issuing maps for bicyclists, motorists, and other travelers. This map contains superb detail of streets (even some of which were never created), along with partial street index. Also shown are parks, cemeteries, some hospitals and educational institutions, and the like. Well designed, with up-to-date information.
