between 1877 and 1915. These maps; available for view in GREAT DETAIL, at the Library of Congress web site are just so gorgeous, they cried out to be shared. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did. If you have troubling opening the link I've supplied, go to Library of Congress, American Memory, and search Middletown, CONN. (if you type in CT you come up with a blank). I found that window size 680x480, download JPEG image gave the best results. Be patient it will take a while to load the images to high quality resolution. The detail is amazing! http://memory.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/f?gmd:0:./temp/~ammem_nEeu:
The link below is also from the LOC and shows the New Haven, Middletown, Boston, Railroad line dated 1867. The image to the left is just a teaser! The map of the railroad can be found at:
This last image is "borrowed" from The Society of Middletown First Settlers Descendant web-site, which Jen Alexander first alerted readers to in a December 2008 blog post; Making History. The link to their web site is below.
