Plan of the Inner Harbor of Boston
- Plan of the Inner Harbor of Boston
Published the same year as Edmund Blunt's small chart of Boston Harbor, this large-scale harbor chart was based on recent surveys conducted by the U.S. Coast Survey and showed considerably more detail for the inner harbor. The chart delineated the numerous wharves lining the shores of East Boston, Charlestown, the eastern side of Boston Proper, and South Boston. In addition, numerous soundings have been recorded for the harbor waters and four cross sections clearly show the location of the deepest channel.
