Check out this sweet vintage school wall map that displays the United States' territorial expansion up to 1854. Printed in Indianapolis, Indiana by the George F. Cram, Company, this wonderfully large map has wonderfully vivid colors and is printed on a heavy paper material. Back in the day this map would have been attached to a metal bracket and rod which would have allowed history teachers to easily pull down the map for display purposes in their classroom. As you can see, the map has since been removed from the bracket and is being sold as is. This map would look great hanging in your library or study, either framed or as is!

We absolutely love the map's bright color palette! The map details the entire United States, which is segmented based off of the various plots of land that joined the union through major events such as the Louisiana Purchase (1803), Spain's decision to cede Florida in 1819, etc). Cool huh?

Note: There is a slight glare on the map due to our lighting equipment. The colors are more bold in person!

Measurements: 51.25" Wide x 37.25" Long

Item Condition: Acceptable vintage condition! Colors are still wonderfully bold and vivid! Has some normal wear due to years of use (i.e. wrinkling, creases, etc). Map has been rolled up for many many years and as such has some rippling which you should be able to smooth out by flattening it. The lower edge of the map is cut somewhat ragged and there are small chunks of the upper left and lower right hand corners missing. Map also appears to have gotten wet at some point as there are some white markings (primarily on the lower portion of the map, most in the oceans & Texas) which we believe may be caused by liquid damage. If you looks closely at picture #5 you'll see some of these white markings. Finally, along the right and left edges of the chart are small tears and wrinkles in the paper. With all of that said, we still think the map is pretty darn amazing, and if nothing else these defects add character to the piece. Would look great framed! Please see the provided pictures for further details.
