O. W. Gray.
Map. Hand colored lithograph. 17 1/2" x 14".
Wonderful mid to late 19th century map of Chicago showing the city limits, labeled streets, railroad lines, and parks. Ormando W. Gray was a map publisher active in the later half of the 19th century. A civilian engineer and surveyor, he worked with several other map publishers like Henry Walling and Colton. His state and county atlases are well known. This is a good example of his work.
