1857 Colton Map of Ontario, Canada - Geographicus - CanadaWest-colton-1857
This is the uncommon 1857 issue of J. H. Colton’s map of Quebec, which at the time was called Canada West or Upper Canada. Covers from Essex in the south to Renfrew in the north, and from Lambton in the west to Glengabby in the east. Includes a detailed inset of Wolf Island and the Vicinity of Welland Canal and Niagara Falls. Divided and color coded according to county and province. Shows major roadways and railroads as well as geological features such as lakes and rivers. Like most Colton maps this map is dated 1855, but most likely was issued in the 1857 issue of Colton’s Atlas . This was the only issue of Colton's Atlas that appeared without his trademark grillwork border. Dated and copyrighted: “Entered according to the Act of Congress in the Year of 1855 by J. H. Colton & Co. in the Clerk’s Office of the District Court of the United States for the Southern District of New York.” Published from Colton’s 172 William Street Office in New York City, NY.
