1926 A Map of the Wondrous Isle of Manhattan

Size Guide

By: Charles Vernon Farrow

Original Date: 1926

Size of Original: 22.4 x 36.4 inches (57 x 94 cm)

This bright and colorful panoramic map is filled with interesting and accurate details all beautifully rendered, making it one of the best of its kind in the first quarter of the 20th century. Here we see 'Manhattan', an American Indian term meaning 'Island of Hills', which in earlier times had been a huge hunting and fishing reserve for indigenous peoples, transformed into a modern city replete with skyscrapers and already bearing a strong resemblance to the city of today. A playful border of vintage automobiles adds to the map's appeal.
