This exceptionally detailed map also shows all of Delaware, although it is not listed in the title. Pennsylvania has only one railroad, connecting Philadelphia with Columbia on the Susquehanna River. No rail lines exist in either of the other states. Includes a large inset plan of Philadelphia. Drawn by Isaac Taylor Hinton. Fine steel engraved map with superb original color, which is unusual as the map is normally found uncolored.
