Map of Indianapolis, 1899

Educational as well as entertaining, this 11 x 17 inch reproduction of an Indianapolis map features historic landmarks, neighborhoods, and ZOMBIES!

Comes with this description: Like other Midwest cities, Indianapolis faced many issues during its period of growth and expansion in the late 19th century. The region’s dependency on local farming and crop rotation led to weather-related economic downturns, government officials and citizens quarreled over new railroads and train stations, and corpses began to rise from their graves in mindless search of living flesh. This map from 1899 pinpoints the origin of the “Zombie” menace, and shows off the city’s innovative “Zone” system of defense. Due to the city’s foresight and lessons learned from other areas, only 1 out of every 4 citizens was turned into a shambling, dead-eyed living monster.
