Haynes, Tilly
Cover: Boston.
1884
Pocket Map
Authors Haynes, Tilly
Full Title (Covers to) New map of Boston giving all points of interest ... Geo H. Walker & Co. Lith. 160 Tremont St. Boston. Copyright 1883 by Tilly Haynes. (with map) Bird's eye view of Boston Harbor, engraved expressly for the United States Hotel Company, showing routes of Nantasket Steamer Co.'s boats ... Geo H. Walker & Co. Lith. Boston. Copyright 1884 by Tilly Haynes.
Note Tilly Haynes was the proprietor of the United States Hotel. He drew both maps. The larger map is titled "New map of Boston giving all points of interest..." The second, somewhat smaller map is "Bird's eye view of Boston Harbor..." The maps and the brochure accompanying have many ads for the U.S. Hotel, which ties in to the fact that they were drawn by the "Resident proprietor" of the Hotel. The maps are very well done. This may be one of the few times that a cartographer managed a hotel. Covers are tan card board with the title "New map of Boston with an extra new map of the harbor. Giving all points of interest or attraction in city, seashore, or suburbs. Revised and corrected for the season. Price 20 Cents. Geo. H. Ellis, Printer, 141 Franklin St., Boston." printed in gold.
