This pocket map folds into brown paper covers "Cram's Indexed County Map and Shipper's Guide of Florida" with the 42-page index "Cram's Township and Shipper's Guide of Florida. The map is nicely printed with several overprinted colors to delineate 40 railroads including Flagler's famous Florida East Coast (FEC) Railroad shown extending all the way to Key West. This section of the railroad was reportedly completed in 1912 suggesting the circa date, but county development places the map closer to 1909 as Pinellas has not yet formed from part of Hillsboro County, nor do we see the new counties of Broward, Bay and Seminole.

Condition: B

The map has nice color and impression with no foxing or staining, but with several fold splits making the map delicate.
