Topographical Map reproduced in black and white and distributed by the Midcontinent Map Company until my father bought them out back in the mid '80s. These maps are not available anywhere else!  If you are a serious relic hunter these maps can be invaluable!  Shows the individual buildings (except in metro areas), all roads, railways, and the topography of the land at the time of the survey. Shows towns that no longer exist and the then current layout of all creeks and waterways. A great tool for locating ghost towns and Civil War campsites! This is a special double-sized map and covers the same area as the Boston and Boston Bay quadrangles.  Actual map size is 28 1/8" X  20" with viewable portion being 26" X 17 1/2". The scale is 1/62500 which is approximately 1 mile equals 1 inch. This map is a more modern copy, is crystal clear, and is in mint condition!


    Covers latitude 42 degrees 15' to 42 degrees 30' and longitude 70 degrees 45' to 71 degrees 15'.  I do not have any adjoining quadrangles available for this map at this time.
