Rand McNally Junior Auto Road Map of New Hampshire and Vermont
Rand McNally & Company, still a major name in map publishing to this day, began as a small print shop opened in Chicago in 1856 by William H. Rand. The shop originally printed guidebooks and directories. In 1858, Rand hired Andrew McNally who was later to become a partner. Within the next few years, the shop got into the railroad business by starting to print railway tickets and schedules, a key step in the development of the company. The ticket printing led to the publishing of railway guides, and by 1872 Rand McNally and Company had the capacity to publish maps. This road map of New Hampshire and Vermont came from Rand McNallys Commercial Atlas, sixty-first Edition dated 1930. A highly successful run of atlases that lasted over a decade. This map includes a detailed plan of all existing highways (in red) and all other roads in existance at the time.
