Description

This lovely folding map of Martha’s Vineyard was published, likely in the mid to late 1930s, by the New England Map Company of Somerville, Massachusetts. A simple outline showing transportation routes, geographic features, and various place names is surrounding by charming black & white vignettes showcasing the island’s history and culture.

Its maritime affiliations are heavily emphasized, along with historical relevance, interesting architecture, and bountiful recreation. Barely legible text boxes provide further information on roads, ponds, hills, Gay Head (now Aquinnah), and Chappaquiddick; while more poetic verse can be found in the lower center. “This is New England of fame and fable, Resist its charms if you are able!”
