Our home was built around 1900. One of the former owners was an early Ford dealer. This is most likely the source of the maps. The appraiser said that they are original lithographs with a value of $50 to $60 each.

Am going to an appraisel show today at a local historical sociaty. 20 bucks per appraisel. Hope to get authentication on lothographs and maybe some kind of value before spending big bucks on restoration. Will keep you posted on progress.

Just took a good look at Your map. No doubt a later version of mine. Same cartographer. Where did You find this map? Who has the original? So many questions, so few answers. I need to stablize my maps. I don't want to handle them to much for they are fragle. Thanks for the look  :).

I will try to get some pictures posted after I find a value and are authenticated. I do not believe my maps are scans or copies but original lithographs. Either way they are cool.

Found five maps from the National Highway Assoc. They are lithoggraphs by the A.Hoen & Co Baltimore Md. These maps are proposed routes for interstate highways. Can't find anything like them on the www. They are; Theodore Roosevelt International Highway 52" x 18", Linchon Highway 45 1/2" x 15", National Park to Park Highway 30" x 21", Lee Highway 45" x 17 1/2", and National Roosevelt Midland Trail 43" x 16".
