Guest Post from Kassie M., Grad student working in the Map Collection

This summer I have been working in maps with a large collection of uncatalogued wall maps. The majority of these maps have been stored within the map collection since the Geology branch was consolidated into the main library. This summer the large collection is being evaluated and sorted. There have been several interesting finds, including this 1918 map of St. Louis. One unique feature of this map is its gothic Forest Park label.

Map: Talbert, C.M. Map of the city of St. Louis as established by the city charter of 1876. [St. Louis, MO], 1918.
