Rand McNally and Co. – North Carolina
We are proud to offer this wonderful large scale map of North Carolina originally issued as part of Rand McNally’s Enlarged Business Atlas and Shippers Guide in 1907. The maps from this atlas were larger than most atlas’ published at the time and show many more cities and towns. All railroad lines were drawn in red and numbered with a listing of all railroads operating in the state on each map. Featured is an inset of the Western portion of North Carolina. William H. Rand founded the company in 1856 and incorporated it in 1873 with his partner Andrew McNally. They published their first atlas, The Business Atlas, in 1877. Rand McNally and Company is the oldest business of it’s kind in the country.
