Mortimer, Carina E.
Date of Creation:
Shows streets, parks, waterways, and major buildings, with historical notes on red and yellow banners. Along the left and right borders are illustrations of important historical events or milestones in New Haven history, and a map of the center of the city in 1748. Many of the illustrations are related to the Yale University campus. There is an inset map of the oldest portion of the campus and the New Haven Green below the University seal and a numbered key to Yale buildings to the right of the title. On the right side is "Pres. Stiles Map of British Attack" and a numbered key to other "Points of Interest" highlighted in the map. The illustrations are done in a simple black outline with flat areas of color, and there are some playful touches such as sea monsters in the rivers, a compass rose surmounted by a winged hourglass, and the map title flanked by the New Haven landmarks East Rock and West Rock
