Description

This wonderful transportation map of New England was published in 1924 by The Matthews-Northrup Works on behalf of the Boston and Maine Railroad. The routes of this railway are almost indistinguishable among the other connecting lines – all depicted in red and listed above the legend.

In addition to traditional combustion-powered railroads, the map also depicts electric railways, ferry routes, ‘automobile lines’ and even roads for use by stage coach. The White Mountain National Forest is highlighted in green and detailed further in an inset map in the lower right corner.

This popular vacation destination is one of many throughout the New England area described in great detail in the accompanying travel guide. It also includes a number of contemporary advertisements, rates, timetables, information on local amenities, recreational opportunities (especially golf), and much more.

According to the intro on the first page, “the design of this booklet is to assist the intending vacationist to select Hotel, Farm, Cottage, or Camp Accommodations in that portion of New England (north and east of Boston) reached by the Boston and Maine Railroad.”
