Big, beautiful and original! 23 by 33 linen map of University City.
Someone spent a lot of time on this page, and for good reason. There's so much cool stuff! Franklin Field, the Palestra, CHOP, a milk depot, and Wawa Dairy, plus the future route of the Schuylkill Expressway as a "Proposed Drive." It also shows a lot of railroad lines - the Pennsylvania Railroad, the West Chester & Pennsylvania Railroad, and the Philadelphia, Baltimore, & Washington Railroad. Unfortunately, the heavier usage means there are some condition issues worth noting. There's a vertical tear near the center fold, chipping to the edges (especially on the left side), the center fold has almost separated, there are pencil marks and substantial soiling. With all that said, you can spend many an afternoon looking at this fabulous map.
Condition: 14-inch tear from the center of the base, a two inch tear slightly to the right from the top of the map, moderate soiling, chipping, small indentations, handwriting.
