Title:
Plan of Boston
Description:
Boston, England, is depicted on this charming map, which appeared in an English county atlas published during the first half of the 19th century. The map is lightly colored with a decorative border. It also includes three inset illustrations of Church and Bridge Boston, Louth Church, and Nocton House. This English city is located on the Witham River in Lincolnshire. The river, which runs through the town, is bordered on the southeast by the South End, on the northeast by St. Botolph's Church and a market place, and on the west by High Street, all of which are names that are familiar in Boston, Massachusetts.
