Gallery Copy: James P. Bogart and Horace Andrews were both born in New Haven and both attended the Sheffield Scientific School of Yale University. Both were recent graduates when they worked as assistants for the United States Coast Survey on a detailed series of maps of New Haven Harbor. They were still young men in their twenties when they published this map of New Haven, based on the Coast Survey maps and other maps by the New Haven City Engineer. Andrews went on to a distinguished career as the city engineer of Albany, New York. Bogart was employed as a surveyor and engineer for the city of Bridgeport, Connecticut.
Description: Pocket map of New Haven, Connecticut, and the surrounding area. The City is divided into 12 wards, colored pink, green, yellow or beige. Streets are labeled and 128 churches, hotels and public halls, educational institutions, banks and miscellaneous buildings are numbered and listed in an index on the left side. The New Haven and Northampton; New Haven and Derby; Boston and New York Air Line; and New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroads run through the city. Physical land features include elevation, conveyed through hachure marks, and swamps. In the harbor, water depth is measured in feet, and contour lines show where the depth is below 3, 6, 12 and 18 feet. The West, Mill and Quinnipiac Rivers are also shown. On the inside cover is a map of the region of New Haven, which shows more of the surrounding terrain to the town line of Cheshire to the north. There are letters on this map that correspond to an index on the inside back cover.
