Description

This striking aerial perspective provides a sweeping view of the White Mountains in northern New Hampshire. It was published in Boston in 1889 by the Rand Avery Supply Company on behalf of the Boston and Maine Railroad.

The company routes through the scenic region shown with bold black lines, connecting between Ossipee Center in the foreground to St. Johnsbury in the upper left. Towns and mountains are depicted pictorially; elevations for the latter are provided in feet.

Text surrounding the image names the various stations served by the B&M lines, while an advertisement on the right side lists other railroad publications available for sale. Timetables on the verso, along with a lovely view of the Willey Brook Bridge in Crawford Notch.
