REDUCED PRICE: OLD MAP BONANZA Recovered from S. Louisiana Home!

Offered here are Eleven (11) ORIGINAL U.S. Dept. of the Interior Geologic Survey Louisiana Quadrangle Maps from 1953 depicting a number of Louisiana cities. These are NOT REPRINTS OR REPRODUCTIONS but are maps actually issued during the '50's from contemporaneous field examinations by LA State Engineers in the 1930's and early 1950's, U.S. aerial photography compiled from 1952 and other earlier 1927 data. THIS is what you needed before GPS (before Sputnik, for that matter). They are incredibly interesting representations of Louisiana's land areas and waterways BEFORE any of the Interstates crossed our state or before our coastal erosion woes.

MAP SIZE: 23" x 27" --- Scale 1:24000; 7 1/2 Minute Series (See pictures. GREAT FOR FRAMING AND DISPLAY.)

All in excellent condition for their age -- they were stored in an environmentally controlled environment for over 60 years. VERY hard to find for all of the cities depicted here. It was definitely a different cityscape and road-map "look" 68 years ago!

SALE PRICE: SOLD --- SOLD --- SOLD!

23" x 27" Maps include the following Louisiana city areas:

1. Baton Rouge -- West

2. Baton Rouge -- East

3. New Roads

4. Plaquemine

5. Denham Springs

6. Walker

7. French Settlement/Port Vincent

8. St. Gabriel
