Entitled “New Map of Boston, Comprising the Whole City, with the New Boundaries of the Wards”, this carefully detailed map of what was the fifth largest city in the United States was originally engraved for inclusion in the 1860 Boston Almanac. In addition to the city’s streets and its 12 wards, the “horse railroad” lines, ferries and wharves are also identified. A reference table identifies 30 locations of note, including the hospital, public buildings and major hotels. An inset showing all of “East Boston” completes the map. An excellent reference for researchers with a mid 19th century Boston connection.
