This ephemeral pocket map advertises "The Old Colony Line is the Shortest, Quickest, Best, and Only Direct Route between Boston or New York, and Nantucket & Martha's Vineyard." The map is a reproduction of the one surveyed and drawn by the Rev. F.C. Ewer in 1869 and shows roads, villages and the boundaries of the Ancient Sachem Rights. It also includes a chronology of events from 1602 to 1877. It folds into a pocket brochure with advertising for the seaside resorts of Oak Bluffs, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket and Cape Cod.
Loss of upper left corner, just outside neatline. Light toning on folds with a small fold intersection split.
