    Here's an approach that's unique. This isn't something that we encounter commonly, as cane collectors fancy them as well, but this 34 inch walking cane contains a nice map of the city of Boston with small architectural vignettes for significant buildings and a key at the bottom for places modern and historical. The map itself is printed on a dense treated cloth, and has endured very well, with some only minimal soiling on its outer edge, which is missing its crimped-on metal edge. We have disengaged the spring loaded roller for easy viewing.

    Image size is approximately of 13 x 19 (inches).
