Note:
This map of Chicago first appeared in Colton's General Atlas of 1870 on the same page with a map of St. Louis. Here it has been used as a separate newspaper insert to show the area burned in the fire of October, 1871. The portion of the title "Map Of Chicago Showing The Burnt District" is colored in red and overprinted on the map for dramatic effect, as is the area on the map that encompasses the burnt district. A scarce piece of ephemera.
