Hello Geographicus - you guys might find this post of mine from another group interesting: https://www.facebook.com/groups/ManhattanBefore1990/permalink/2486634748109469
Are you familiar with McDaniel Well Maps of Calgary Alberta Canada? I have 2 different ones that unfortunately have been folded up for many decades and are not in great shape as far as I'm concerned. There are no dates on these maps.
Like so many of us I adore maps. Geographicus has some of best--and most afforadable--I've seen.
Are you interested in this map? Its been in my possesion for a while and has a lot of interesting and historical things on it. I am interested to know your opinions on it and whether you would want to add it to your already amazing collection. Happy Birthday to you.
#milanomapfair #savethedate
The map below was purchased in a Manhattan antique store in 1968 for $30. I assume it's a high quality reproduction as the paper is handmade and colors printed individually, but beyond that we know zilch about its origin, Internet searches and map dealers we took it to couldn't help. Any insight very much appreciated, it's a very cool map.
