Description

This attractive map of the northeastern United States covers a portion of Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New Jersey and highlights the robust system of local transportation options then projected and in operation. A complex network of steam railroads and trolley routes can be seen connecting the vast majority of the rural interior to the major urban centers; notably Philadelphia, New York, Allentown, Wilmington, and others.

Topographic and geographic features are depicted in the abstract, with attractive colors giving the audience a mere impression of the countryside punctuated by rolling hills, forests, and farmland.

The image is an interesting reminder of the former transportation options enjoyed by many across America, before the rise of the automobile and the Interstate Highway System. Published in Philadelphia by E.H. Rosenberger in 1907.
