"Eastern Half of Texas," George Franklin Cram, Chicago, 1891. (Image: 13 ½" wide x 20 1/4" high). Cerographic relief line engraving with counties in pastel colors of green, yellow, pink and gold. George Cram was a noted Civil War veteran, writer and illustrator who served with the 105th Illinois Infantry Regiment. He founded the publishing company with his uncle in 1867. This large map identifies all of the railways throughout eastern Texas, with station stops along the route. Each railroad company is identified beside the rail line. This map is the other half of Cram’s two 1891 maps of Texas. It identifies many dozen ranchos by name: Kennedy’s; Gallagher's Ranch; Rancho el Sauz, Rancho de Lomita; Polito Blanco; Grey’s; Rancho Alamo. Really great ranching history noted on this map. The condition of this map is excellent.
