A rather scarce map of the plans for the Falls of the Ohio at Louisville / Jeffersonville.  This is a highly detailed map of the plans for the canal, as well as the respective cities.  Jarred Brooks, a Louisville Engineer, is typically credited for the details in the map and inset for the then current and proposed configuration of the Ohio River, its rapids and Canal.  Uncolored.
