Called a Sectional and Township map because, you guessed it, townships and individual sections are depicted, this map was designed to accompany the county atlases produced by Baskin, Forester & Co. throughout the latter half of the 19th century. Printed using lithographic techniques and colored by hand, this detailed map also displays transportation systems, such as railways, roads, and rivers in addition to the many small towns that popped up in the state during and after the Civil War. Lastly, individual buildings of note can also be found – post offices and train stations reflect the priorities of the audience at the time of publication.
On the verso are engraved views of the Richmond Agricultural Works, prominent residences, and Earlham College. An interesting map for anyone with interest in the Hoosier State.
