Boston, MA 1939 USGS Map

Frame (16x20 Inch Paper Print Only)

Boston, MA 1939 USGS Map

We love old maps. Their coloration, typography, legends, notations, and sometimes even outdated place names all have a nostalgic quality that gives them a special beauty. If you share our love for vintage maps, you’ll appreciate this 1939 Boston, MA USGS Map in our Historic Series. In remastering maps for this series, we go to great pains to clean them up, eliminating stains, stamps, handwriting, and other signs of map aging. We then rework them into easily framable sizes and bring out the richness of their colors and details. Because we print them on fine archival paper and canvas, all their original beauty shines through. Browse our extensive collection of parks, cities, states, and more. It’s like traveling in a cartographic time machine.

    • Made in the USA

      We consider our maps to be works of art, so we print and frame them accordingly. We offer two choices of print surfaces: fine-art archival paper and stretched canvas.

      Every map is custom printed. We have no inventory. Only when we receive your order do we produce your print on our 12-color giclée printer, using top-quality archival inks that will never fade.

      Fine Art Paper-Our archival paper is museum-quality, 100% cotton, acid-free, and certified to last 100 years. This assures sharp details, true colors, and exceptional durability.

      Canvas Gallery Wrap-If you prefer a frameless look, order your map on stretched canvas, which offers a bit more depth and texture. We use archival canvas, gallery-wrapped and varnished, stretched onto a 1.5-inch-thick wood frame.

      Reclaimed-Wood Frame-Handmade in Michigan utilizing wood salvaged from a historic mill in Detroit, that is oiled to bring out the natural beauty of the wood. The frames have a 1.75" face and 0.75" rough-cut sides.

      Black Frame-For a cleaner aesthetic, we offer a simple matte black wood frame with a 1.25" face and 1" sides.

      Anybody from Boston would love this 1939 map - a great gift to give. Good quality paper and well shipped. You won't realize how much water is in and around the Boston metropolitan area until you start looking at this highly detailed city map.

      excellent detail of the Boston area (1939) that shows how much the city has changed

      the map is printed on quality paper stock and the detail of the streets, neighborhoods, and waterways around Boston make it fun to locate your favorite places in the area. Because it is an older map (1939) it shows the changes that have happened in the Boston area in the last 80 years...some places have really changed! I look forward to keeping it framed in my living room for years to come!
