The First Map of Richmond Published in a Commercial Atlas
Nice example of Gray's scarce map of Richmond Virginia, colored by wards and showing streets, rail lines, parks, buildings, stations and a host of other details.
The map was published by OW Gray in Philadelpia.
O. W. Gray was a publishing firm based in Philadelphia. Later, they published as O. W. Gray & Son. They published atlases in the late nineteenth century. Gray's National Atlas was one of the most successful commercial ventures of the 1870s and one of the last to employ hand coloring on maps.
