Plan of the City of Meriden New Haven Co. Conn.
(North America, United States, New England, Connecticut, New Haven County, Meriden, Balmoral Skirt Factory, Detailed City Plan).
Issued 1868, New York by F.W. Beers.
Uncommon and detailed mid 19th century lithographed city plan map with original hand color.
Very detailed with countless home owners named, numerous buildings shown in outline profile, great for genealogical research. Specific businesses include a steam saw mill, stables, hotels, bank, a hardware manufacturer, a maker of combs and piano keys, etc.
Paper shows a lovely age patina, and is uniformly well age toned, the edges now slightly brittle. This fragile map will require careful handling, but remains worthy of framing and display.
