Map. Engraving with original hand coloring. 15 1/2 x 23 1/2 inches.
Detailed map of Flushing in Queens County, New York. Insets of Douglaston and Hinsdale show a closer look at those towns. Frederick W. Beers (flourished 1858-1929) came from a family of surveyors, cartographers and publishers originally from Newtown Connecticut. F.W. Beers continued the work of his father James Botsford Beers and was known for his county survey maps of New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Connecticut and Vermont. Nice visual record of 19th century land ownership in Queens.
