Enlarged map

One of my relatives has asked for a larger view of the 1832 map of Danvers. (See previous post.) I've taken a new photo today, which I've attempted to post here in the largest size.  But the blogger software limits the size that can be displayed, unfortunately.   See below for alternatives.

For better quality images, I would need to use a better camera or, ideally, to remove the fragile map from its frame and have it scanned on a large flat-bed scanner, or take it to a professional to do the job. A project for another day...

Fortunately the Danvers Archival Center has copies of this published map.  And the Norman B. Leventhal Map & Education Center at the Boston Public Library has a copy that is viewable online:
You can zoom in to focus on details.  Very nice!    [viewed 9/21/21]
