Join us for an evening of antique maps, prints, and ephemera with a focus on the history of Chicago and the Mid-West. From the early days of French fur trappers and local natives meeting in this region once known as Che-ka-gou, through the era of settlers in the Northwest Territory, the Great Chicago Fire, two World's Fairs, and mayhem of the roaring 1920s and 1930s, there was a wide range of maps and prints produced that illustrate the rich history of Chicago. We will have much of material on display and available for purchase.
The event will include a lecture on the History of Midwestern and Chicago Maps by local map dealer and friend of New World Cartographic, Curtis Wright of Curtis Wright Maps.
