  • Eldridge's Map of Martha's Vineyard.

    A dramatic large folding map for the island surrounded by sailing ships and steamers. Shows the roads and "proposed route of electric railway", along with towns and points of interest, even the location of the submarine telephone and telegraph cables ("Don't Anchor"). Notes a few places in the nearby Sea that are good for fishing ("Bass Fishing Here"). A large inset in the upper left shows the relative position of the Vineyard to the Main land, and two tables of distance show distances to key locations both in nautical and sea miles, as well as land miles for locations on the island. Also a "List of Some of the Leading Business Firms of Vineyard Haven" are shown.

    Condition is good with minor loss and seperations near the covers. The map has foxing, mostly marginal, but some on the left and near the title. Image size is approximately 22.75 x 32.5 (inches)
