Original 1876 Bartholomew Atlas Map of North Island, NZ (9468)
This is VERY interesting! Note the small regional names...Cooks, Queens, Banks, Eden, East Cape... It is also interesting that the majority of towns are already on the map.
One notable exception is Hastings in 'Hawke Bay'. Apparently the town of Hastings was not lain out until 1873, and so it is not surprising that it does not appear....and look at the North Shore in Auckland--there for the taking (no doubt by the sheep!).
Measures 385mm x 320mm.
Vintage frame with has one chip on the top right hand side.
