This is a superb map showing the railroads with bold red over-printing. State & territory boundaries are depicted along with major cities, forts and mining communities. Steamship routes and time zones, new to the day, are also displayed. This map is without the often seen Mitchell decorative border. Published by W. Bradley & Bros.
