1924 Routes of the Interborough Rapid Transit Co., New York
A classic map from 1924 showing the routes of the Interborough Rapid Transit Company, or IRT, one of the precursors of today’s modern New York subway system. Like many New York maps of this vintage, north is to the right. The map shows subways in red and elevated railroads in blue. This map required a lot of dirt/scuff cleaning and cloning. Image sourced from the Library of Congress.
Available in two image sizes: 37.5″ wide by 22″ high (with a 1″ white margin on each side); and 23″ wide by 13.3″ high (with a 0.5″ white margin on each side).
