Philadelphia: G.W. Bromley, 1925.
Map. Original Lithograph. 11 1/2 x 16 1/4 inches
This ward map of Manhattan shows the area from W. 127th Street to W 122nd Street, - on the recto, from Amsterdam to Eighth Ave. On the verso, it depicts from Eighth Ave to Lenox. Ward maps were used by fire insurance companies to determine the potential hazards of particular buildings. Color-coding indicates building materials: pink denotes brick and yellow denotes wood. The map was published in Bromley's 1925 Desk top edition of "Atlas of the City of New York, Borough of Manhattan". It is in very good condition with pleasant original coloring. This fine map shows how much New York City has changed--and hasn't--in the last hundred years.
