(Southwest - Texas) Missouri Pacific


  • The West 2020
  • (Southwest) Map Of The South-Western Railway System. Missouri Pacific Mo. Kansas & Texas. Cent. Branch U.P.R.R. Stl Ouis, Iron Mountain & Southern- Int. & Great Northern And Texas and Pacific Railways

    When you travelled on the Mo.Pac and Iron Mountain Railways in the 1880's they issued a free newspaper that illustrated and discussed the lands you were traveling. Discussing development, land for sale, the agricultural potential and new infrastructure, it was a biased look at getting you to consider settlement. In the centerfold was a double page map that spanned from Cairo and St Louis to Laramie, Santa Fe and south to Laredo. This is a complete issue of the "Great South-West" newspaper, with some wear and fold separation to the cover sheet, but with inner contents in good condition.

    Condition is very good for the map. Image size is approximately 16.5 x 10.5 (inches)
