Atlases of the City of Boston, G.W. Bromley & Co., 1883 & 1902

 



This collection contains the digitized plates of two atlases of Boston from actual surveys and official records made by the civil engineering firm G.W. Bromley & Co. for fire insurance purposes. The two atlases were published in 1883 and 1902 respectively. Neighborhoods surveyed include only Boston proper. The actual maps are 20 ½ inches by 30 inches. MIT will be digitizing a selection of Bromley atlases over the next few years. For large tiff versions of these maps (270+ megabytes) please contact the staff of Rotch Visual Collections at rvc-all@mit.edu. The atlases are located in the Limited Access collection in Rotch Library:
