Mapping Places From Above: A Peak into the BPL’s Bird’s-Eye View Map Collection

October 5 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The Boston Public Library holds a remarkable collection of approximately 500 bird’s-eye view maps from the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. How were these maps produced? How accurate are they? What sorts of historical information can we learn from them?

Join the Leventhal Map & Education Center for a deep dive on bird’s-eye view maps of Boston, mapmaking techniques and more.

This event is free and open to the public and light refreshments will be served. It’s co-hosted by the Jamaica Plain Branch Library and will be in a hybrid format. You can attend in-person or via Zoom. Please use this link to register https://us06web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_454pRxlOQUWnmlcIUeFPgw
