Lot #29 - 1800's Burlington Route Wall Map on Wooden Rollers



Railroad Chicago Burlington & Quincy  
Size 46" by 33"
Type linen backed, wooden rollers
Condition Very Good

Large Burlington Route map with original wooden rollers on top and bottom. Measures 46" by 33". Linen was applied in thin strips at one point to the vertical margins. This has saved the map from splitting and tearing on the margins. It has Longitudinal lines vertically and it has county level detail along with depots on the Chicago Burlington & Quincy. It is not dated but with car interior vignettes that look like the 1880s-1890s period in the lower left corner, it seems to be very old. The GPA was P. S. Eustis. Printed by Rand McNally in Chicago. It has a few old creases but no damage. It could be rolled and shipped. Very Good condition considering age.
