(North America, United States, New England, Connecticut, New Haven County, Wallingford, Detailed City Plan).
Issued 1868, New York by F.W. Beers.
Uncommon and detailed mid 19th century lithographed map with original hand color.
Very detailed with countless home owners named, great for genealogical research. The business directory includes merchants, carpenters, various types of mechanics, manufacturers, etc.
Paper shows a lovely age patina, and is uniformly age toned, the edges now slightly brittle. This fragile map will require careful handling, but remains worthy of framing and display.
