Map of Chicago, 1868

This handsome 11 x 17 inch print will enliven any office, home, or place where art can hang! Comes with this description of an early time in Illinois history:

Grand old Chicago-town is seen here in her splendor before the Great Fire of 1871. This hand-tinted map contrasts the growth of the city in just under 5 years, from its prehistoric beginnings in 1820 to a bustling city of industry and trade, hampered only by The Lake Michigan Monster, who prowled the depths of the waterbed long after all the area’s native dinosaurs were hunted to extinction.
