Looking east, Walker's view takes in the wharf, the waterfront, and the harbor with many sailing vessels. Measures 18" x 14" within the neat lines. <br></br> This view is quite scarce on the market. No sales recorded in AMPR; no holdings in WorldCat. <br></br> Vineyard Haven, is a working harbor village in the town of Tisbury, Massachusetts a year-round port for Martha’s Vineyard island. Locations in Vineyard Haven that Walker included in his list of references include: the East Chop light; Mansion House; Windmill; sailor's free reading room; and Lagoon Heights. Walker also identifies by name the homes of important Vineyard Haven residents including Dr. William Leach, Captain Benjamin C. Cromwell, Captain Clough, Captain P.L. Smith, and Captain Owens. <br></br> The second state of Walker's view of Vineyard Haven is easily identified as it contains two additional location names on the bottom roll of the scroll of references: 'Grove Hill House' and 'Association Hall'. Also, in the upper right quadrant there are numerous street additions and deletions as compared to the first edition. The second edition also contains marginal text denoting the four compass directions. <br></br> [1] Online. Vineyard Haven bird's-eye view. 1st.

$260.00George-W--Walker-Lithograph-and-Publishing-CoBoston-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>
