{colton+cadence} vintage maps

Sometime in February or March the kids and I drove up to Tacoma to pick up some maps.

1754

I won a bid on Goodwill.com, but it was for local pick up only.

1754-2

So we drove almost 3 hours one way to get them.

1754-3

I am so glad we did.

1754-4

One was a nine map classroom set.

1790

Illustrated American history maps.

1790-1

Starting in the 1600’s up until the early 1900’s.

1790-2

My dad remembers this set from elementary school.

1790-3

That was in the 1950’s.

1829

Although it was a hard decision, I split the set up and decided to sell some in my Instagram shop, @coltoncadence.

1829-3

Three of them have sold.

1829-2

There are still two available.

1829-1

They are gorgeous.

1861

Vibrant colors.

1861-4

Detailed drawings.

1861-3

I’m probably going to regret selling them.

1861-2

I’ve never seen anything like them.

1861-1

It’s kind of like telling the story of the first Thanksgiving.

1893

One of the maps that is still available has the Lewis and Clarks route on it.

1893-4

I kept four of them for us.

1893-3

One is in the playroom.

1893-2

One is in the little guys room.

1893-1

If you want one, go check out what’s left (1829 and 1790)!

home is…an illustrated history.
