Map of Memphis, 1870

You'll certainly love this 11 x 17 inch print of the Memphis area! History! Maps! Monsters!

Comes with this description: This beautiful, hand-colored map of Memphis, Tennessee shows the city in a burst of economic vitality. Railroad depots and steamships are abundant in the port city, as are the numerous churches listed on the map, perhaps due to the presence of Grace, the Mississippi River Monster. For years Grace wreaked havoc with river travel and shipping before she was finally subdued in a battle royale with the Memphis Monster.
