Mapping Places From Above: A Peak into the BPL’s Bird’s-Eye View Map Collection
October 5 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM EDTCost: Free
The Boston Public Library holds a remarkable collection of approximately 500 bird’s-eye view maps from the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. How were these maps produced? How accurate are they? What sorts of historical information can we learn from them?
Join the Leventhal Map & Education Center for a deep dive on bird’s-eye view maps of Boston, mapmaking techniques and more.
This event is free and open to the public and light refreshments will be served. It’s co-hosted by the Jamaica Plain Branch Library, the Leventhal Map & Education Center and the JP Historical Society and will be in a hybrid format. You can attend in-person or via Zoom.
