Mappy Monday - Norman B. Leventhal Map Center

One of my favorite blogs to read is Two Nerdy History Girls. There you will find information dealing with all aspects of history. Just some of the subjects the girls cover being literature, fashion and travel.

Last week the map featured in the post Visiting 'Loveland', c 1943 captured my attention. The map can be found on the Norman B. Leventhal Map Center at the Boston Public Library website.

That website states their mission is to collect and preserve maps and atlases to promote research and make resources available to the public. The collection consists of 200,000 historical maps and 5,000 atlases. New images are added to the site weekly. Images are searchable by subject, place, date or author.

Thanks to the Two Nerdy Girls for highlighting this valuable resource.

Happy Mappy Monday!
