Sudbury from Henry F. Walling's Map of Middlesex County, 1856

Henry F. Walling's Map of Middlesex County, 1856. This is a 5x5 foot map assembled from 24(?) pieces printed separately and assembled. This has great detail, but Sudbury is right in the middle and therefore has 4 different maps that never meet properly, altho the BPL version seems best.

Here are the copies of the Map I know about and the date I photographed them. More details on the Oddessey page.
