c1884 Early Houston TX City Map~18"x24"
A beautiful 1884 era Houston reproduction map from O.W. Gray's scarce "National Atlas". The map is drawn by Frank Gray and was hand colored. It is placed in the period of reconstruction and expansion between the Civil War and 1900. This is one of the most decorative maps ever drawn of Houston and is full of detail, showing many almost-forgotten features. The detail of public buildings, railroads and street railways is especially good. This gorgeous map would stand out in the home den or on an office wall.
A companion 1884 map of Galveston is also available in our EBay store.
The sample picture shown is at very low Internet resolution and reduced in size. It does not even begin to show the detail and quality of the actual map. All Antique Maps of Texas™ reproductions are scanned at 300+ dpi and offer fantastic resolution and detail even in reduced sized prints.
The Perfect Gift: As period decor, a business gift, and as a working map for writers, scholars, schools, historians, researchers,
Frame Size: The map fits nicely in easily available stock frames. This size is easily readable as well as creating a striking effect on den and office walls. All maps are printed on very heavy acid-free paper with archival inks. Beautiful in a frame,but also capable of withstanding continuous handling and everyday use.
While there is nothing like owning an original map, a quality reproduction offers access to almost unavailable maps, affordable pricing and the opportunity to actually use the map rather than just protect it. Unlike many cheap reproductions which are taken from easily available archives and reproduced on inferior poster paper or inflexible "parchment" for effect, all maps from Electric Books are professonal quality products on expensive high quality paper stock. In addition, we actually own or have the rights to all of the maps which we reproduce. They are direct :1 to :1 high resolution reproductions from the originals, not dowloaded copies of copies of copies...
