This is a reproduction of a lovely pictorial map of Boston Massachusetts. The map was made as promotional material by the Boston Five Cents Savings Bank located at 30 School Street in the center of the map.
Every street is noted and various landmarks, and districts are noted, including Chinatown, the Shopping District, the site of the Boston Tea Party, Paul Revere’s house, the Old State House, and Beacon Hill, to name a few. Flanking the map are several coat-of-arms representing letters, music, art, trade, medicine, law, science, and industry. A compass rose, sailing and motor ships, and a whale ornament the Boston Harbor.
What can be referred to as modern cartography has been around for over 550 years. Throughout that time an enormous amount of new land was discovered, cities were founded while others perished. International trade and travel became the norm, political borders were ever-changing, and numerous wars were waged. With all that being said, hundreds of thousands of maps were created that show such events and episodes in time.
