This vivid depiction of Cape Cod by Mary E. Murray extends from the Cape to the mainland including Duxbury, Plymouth, and New Bedford. The map locates towns and villages along the coastline, roads, lakes, Camp Edwards, and a lighthouse at Provincetown. A large illustration of a fisherman rowing in his haul fills Cape Cod Bay while a decorative border reveals the numerous recreational activities available on the island. The map is further embellished by a compass rose and large title cartouche featuring seagulls and a fishing net.
