For What It’s Worth

A recent visitor brought in an 1883 Fall River atlas published by Geo. H. Walker & Co. This firm produced atlases for scores of towns across the East Coast. This atlas included street maps and engraved drawings of buildings of local importance and interest. This example in poor condition has a value of between $200 and $300. Wish someone would bring in a Newport atlas.
