1857 BRITISH MAP TEXAS GALVESTON HOUSTON & HENDERSON RR
1857 BRITISH MAP TEXAS GALVESTON HOUSTON & HENDERSON RR
This is a beautiful map of Texas showing railroads open, under construction, and the main line of the Galveston, Houston & Henderson railroad in red. On the verso is a map of the U.S. with Texas colored in pink, showing connections of Texas railroads to the U.S. lines. This is probably the first railroad map of Texas. The first railroad map of Texas listed in Modelski is Modelski 551, Map of Texas showing the Sabine and Galveston Bay Railroad, 1859. The earliest in Day is the 1861 Map of the Buffalobayou (Day 135). Although undated, this map is clearly derived from the 1857 Colton atlas map of Texas; and the Galveston, Houston, & Henderson Railroad was raising money in London (where this map was published, probably to accompany a bond prospectus) and Paris in 1857 to finance expansion..

From map: Texas Of The United States Of America, Shewing The Galveston, Houston, & Henderson Rail Road. King, Lith. 63 Queen St. New Cannon St. London.
