LOC:0
$260.00Walker-Lithograph-and-Publishing-CompanyBoston-Harbor-and-the-North-ShoreOrginal antique birdseye view folding map of Boston Harbor by George Walker shows ferry routes, steamer routes and railroad lines between Boston and points both within Boston Harbor and to outlying towns. This fascinating old lithographed map differs from other birdseye-view maps we are aware of from this era because it includes Marblehead, Lynn, Salem and extends north-eastwards to Gloucester, Massachusetts. We can date the map with confidence because it clearly shows the Wonderland Amusement Park at Revere Beach which failed after five years, operating exclusively between 1906 and 1911. Wonderland, served by the Revere Beach and Lynn Railroad, was modeled along the lines of the World's Fairs of that era and included roller coasters, technological exhibits, theaters and a boardwalk. <br></br> Noted points of interest include Charlestown, Point of Pines, Magnolia, Baker's Island, Thompson's Island, "the Pumping Station", Dorchester Bay, Squantum, Norfolk Downs, Quincy Bay, Hough's Neck, Hingham Harbor, Winthrop, Beachmont, Great Head, Peddock's Island, Nantasket Beach, Port Allerton, the town of Hull with Fort Revere, George's Island with Fort Warren, Deer Island, Lovell's Island, Lynn, Swampscott, Thatcher's Island, Strawberry Hill, and many more. Captures several local lighthouses and aids to navigation including Boston Light, Long Island Light, Fawn Bar Beacon, Graves Light, and far out the bay - a whisting buoy. <br></br> Original lithograph by George W. Walker, lithographer of Boston in landscape format is in very good condition for a 105+ year old map. Was originally folded into a card cover but the front half has disappeared leaving the map attached to the back cover, as issued. <br></br>

The broadside and map advertise the auction of several hundred lots in "Boca Ratone" by owner George Long (1), and conducted by George Fryhofer, auctioneer on Washington's birthday, Feb 22, 1915, eight years before the town of Boca Raton was incorporated. <br></br> This rare broadside clearly shows the location of the Post Office and of the home of George Long, a home that formerly belonged to Henry Flagler. Map also has a scene of a rat and a cat at the entrance to Lake Boca Raton; the land encompassed within the cat is labeled "<b>Black Cat Plantation</b>" (2). <br></br> "The Youngs heard that George Fryhofer was holding a lot auction in Boca Raton, so Mrs. Young and her friend, Mr. Muhle, came up to attend the auction. Peg [Young] surprised herself by buying four lots on East Palmetto Park Road [previously Ocean Boulevard] where the 7-11 store is located". (Source: https://www.bocahistory.org/_files/span_river/SRP%20Feb%201978.pdf) <br></br> (1) George Ashley Long (d. 1929) was a retired farmer, civil engineer, and commissioner from South Palm Beach County, Florida as well as the first mayor of Boca Raton. In the same year as this sale (1915) Long developed the three-block <b>Pearl City</b> subdivision for African Americans near today’s Dixie Highway and Glades Road. Pearl City, about 3/4 mile from this property, was named for a variety of pineapple, the Hawaiian Pearl. (2) <b>Black Cat Plantation</b> was a parcel of land owned by the first settler in Boca Raton, <b>Captain Thomas Moore Rickards</b>. Rickards bought 50 acres in Lake Boca Raton in the 1880's when he worked as a railway agent to survey the state. Rickards is credited with drawing the first known map of the area in 1900.

$500.00Withers--James-HarlanA-Texan-s-Map-of-U-S-A-A Texan's Map of U.S.A. A derivative edition of a classic pictorial "humorous" map with more than a whiff of the intolerance that some believe permeates the state of Texas today. Tablecloth-sized map of the United States on Indian Head cloth [1] based on a design copyrighted by J.H. Withers in 1947 and branded with the imprint of Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. <br></br> Wither's distinctive design elements include a revised shape for Texas which extends to the west coast to provide Texas with a space for a "future seaport" and the appellation "damm' Yankee territory" for most of the northeast U.S.A. <br></br> The Catalog of Copyright Entries for 1947 records a copyright for "A Texan's Map of U.S.A.", held by James Harlan Withers of San Angelo, Texas. Wither's 1947 pictorial map is the earliest documented example of a genre of pictorial map with many derivative versions that begin with the fact that Texas was, at the time, the largest state in the U.S. and extend that simple premise to exaggerate the importance and quality of the state of Texas over the every other state in the U.S.A. <br></br> Early 50's date is supported by the fact that neither Alaska nor Hawaii, which both attained statehood in 1959, are mentioned on the map. <br></br> [1] Indian Head cloth was not manufactured after 1962. Indian Head Cloth Permanent Finish Sanforized stamping on a single line is associated with cloth produced from the late 1940s to early 1950s.

With the introduction of the TCP-IP protocols, ARPANET grew rapidly in size and within less than 20 years evolved into the Internet. <br /><br /> ARPA stands for Advanced Research Projects Agency, a U.S. Defense Department agency responsible for leading-edge technical research. Beginning in 1967, by 1969 the ARPANET network interconnected four supercomputers, in 1970 - 9 supercomputers and by 1972 - 24 supercomputers . <br /><br /> The ad shows the location of ARPANET supercomputers, generally large universities and research institutions; the interconnections between those supercomputers; and the data exchanged between the computers. <br /><br /> In the early 1970's networking concepts were poorly understood and the artist uses common pictograms as metaphors as an aid to understanding. Without exception each university/research Supercomputing center is represented by old white men in suits, most with ties (NASA Ames the exception). Names of each institution appears on the outstretched arms of the old white men as they extend into the cube of another instiituton with an old white man. By Digital Equipment Corporation, Maynard, Massachusetts, run by old white men in the 1970's.
