BARNES, Rufus L.
Barnes' map of Philadelphia built portion of the city
[Philadelphia]: published by R.L. Barnes, [no date, but c.1859]. Hand-coloured map, old folds. (Neat repairs to folds). Engraved by Thomas Wagner. Cloth cover with gilt lettering in mylar sleeve on verso. Sheet size: 24 x 24 3/4 inches.
An interesting and attractive map Philadelphia.
Barnes here records the city at an interesting stage in its development: included are the streets, railroads, city wards, & points of interest. The area covered is from Fairmont Park to part of eastern New Jersey (Camden) beyond Delaware River, and Mifflin to Venango Streets. Though the title claims to chart the "built portion of the city", a good deal of the as yet un-built portion is included.
