Description

A fine example of the Matthews-Northrup “indexed vest-pocket series” of maps, this original antique map of St. Louis was issued by this Buffalo, New York firm in 1895.  The company issued this series showing all the states and 18 “chief cities,” the maps in various sizes “but all folded to vest-pocket size” and with red covers as here.  The city is shown with excellent detail (“They give all there is,–what more do you want?”), including the streets, parks, railroad and street car lines.
