OLD 1895 CITY MAP OF ST. PAUL, MINNESOTA

BEAUTIFUL original turn of the century map of ST. PAUL, MN as neatly disbound from “Cram’s Standard American Railway System Atlas of the World”, published by George F. Cram, Chicago & New York, 1895. The map of ST. PAUL measures about 13 x 17.5” including margins and about 10.5 x 13” without margins. It is attractively colored yellow & blue.

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. South American map on the reverse side.

“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.”
