OLD 1895 CRAM’S STATE RAILROAD MAP OF WYOMING

BEAUTIFUL original turn of the century RAILROAD map for the state of WYOMING as neatly disbound from “Cram’s Standard American Railway System Atlas of the World”, published by George F. Cram, Chicago & New York, 1895. This map is a LARGE double-page map which measures 17 ½ x 25" (including margins).

This map shows the routes of the only 4 railroads operating in the state of WY in this era.

ALSO, on the back of one half of this Wyoming map is a CITY MAP OF PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND. This actual map (without margins) measures about 11.5 x 15” and shows street names and numerous other landmarks.

Few minor edge tears, but map is in quite good condition on paper of fine old rag content and would look great if matted / framed. The State and each County is outlined beautifully in red. There is some printing on edges (margins) of the Wyoming map & on reverse side (on the page without city map).



“George Cram was born in 1841 and served with the Union forces in the Civil War before going into the map publishing business with his uncle in 1867. Two years later, he founded his own company, publishing maps and atlases. He was one of the first American map makers to start using Lithographic Coloring techniques. His state maps name & number every railroad line by a legend on the map, which gives a detailed glimpse into the prolific rail-system of turn-of-the-century America. Cram’s maps contain great detail including counties, cities and towns, lakes and rivers, mountains, and some other topographical marks. His maps include decorative borders.”
