Plate 3. Merion and Overbrook. Thomson and Wilson estates, Corker Hill

We have a large selection of large scale maps of properties (residential, commercial, and institutional) that extended along the tracks of the Pennsylvania Railroad between City Line at Overbrook and Paoli to the west. The maps contain fascinating information about property owners, types of buildings on the properties with frame, brick, barns, stables, green houses all shown, sewer lines, steam railways, electric railroads and “macadamized” roads. This map was included in a particularly beautifully colored atlas.
This map shows the old Merion campus of The Episcopal Academy that currently belongs to St. Joseph's University.

22 x 31 ½ inches, overall.
Hand colored lithograph.
