Map of the White Mountains. Advertising brochure of the new Mount Pleasant House. Birds-eye view of the White Mountains copyright 1880 by H. N. Turner.

by Barron Hotels

Condition: Very Good

1890 Map of the White Mountains. Advertising brochure of the new Mount Pleasant House, "The nearest hotel to the Mount Washington, which is in Plain view from base to summit."This sheet contains on the back an unrecorded version of a very early Birds-eye view of the White Mountains copyright 1880 by H. N. Turner. It was used later (early 1900's) used in several brochures for "Automobile Gala Week in the White Mountains". It measures 9 1/8 inches wide by 8 1/4 inches tall. Minor edgewear. Folding seem splits at the top and bottom. Right and Left edges may have been trimmed to fit an album or other such archiving, though all pertinant information seems to be there. Photographs of the Mount Pleasant house, and the Carzon trail up Mount Stickney which was behind Mount Pleasant House. This map is quite interesting as it contains 34 noted locations mostly mountains and notches. Also listed is Tuckerman's a ravine, mount wildcat, upper Gateway, giant stairs, etc. Another interesting note is the inclusion of hotels, train lines and trains, rivers, a lake, a horse drawn carriage can also be seen between the Glenn house and Mount Washington. The many towns and villages in the area are also noted; from the Pemigewasset house in Plymouth in the lower south western corner as far north as Lunenburg, Vermont and Lancaster, New Hampshire in the upper north western corner; to the east we see a train, the Moose River and Alpine hotel; following the train lines down we come finally to the south eastern corner with Conway and Ossipee Lake. All-in-all of this is one of the most well illustrated Birds-eye views we have seen in quite a while. Many items shown are quite small however can be well viewed with a magnifying glass. Listing #29 is also not present, & Several name tags on the map are missing when compared to the 1904 version though RR's seen are MCRR so it will date somewhere from 1887 to about 1900. Very good plus condition. Should be seen. . Very Good. Bagged & Boarded for Posterity.
