New Additions: Map of Narragansett Bay

NEW ADDITIONS bannerNEW ADDITIONSToday we are sharing an interesting map of New England’s largest estuary, Narragansett Bay. This map, published c.1890, highlights the over 30 small islands in the Bay. The map is also intriguing because it is surrounded with local Rhode Island advertisements, including our two favorites: “What Cheer Show Printing and Engraving House” and one on the verso for the “Westminster Art Company, S.M. Vose proprietor”. We hope you enjoy this gem of a map!
