This detailed map shows the town and district of Falls Church, bounded by Guinea Road in the west, Leesburg Pike in the east, and a railway in the south that runs approximately along the present-day Capital Beltway Outer Loop. The map identifies roads, rivers and even property owners in the area. Numbers along the roads denote the distance in rods. An inset map shows a street plan of the west end of Alexandria, and the map includes an advertisement for Chas Arnold, a local house painter. On verso are maps of Dranesville District, the Forestville/Great Falls area, and a street plan of the area around the Fairfax court house.
Light soiling and toning that is more pronounced along the centerfold, with a short centerfold separation at bottom and a couple of tiny chips along the edges of the sheet.
