Title

Moose and Black Rivers

Description

This map's full title--"Lakes and reservoirs, head waters, Moose and Black Rivers: showing present and proposed feeders to Black River Canal"--reveals the underlying interests that probably generated its creation. Even in 1862, canals still were considered important drivers of economic development and here topographic features share space with their usefulness as canal feeders.
