Default Geo. Walker 1903 Map of Winni

Found this cool site with a search-able copy of the famous 1903 Walker Map of the Lake.

It's search able and you can d/l the map. The resolution is awesome when you "zoom" to different spots on the lake.

This is a snip of Lake Shore Park with the Hotel before it burned down in 1910. Big Pier, the pavilion and the RR track.

You can search the entire map to that level of detail.

Thumbs up It's a Print, but a Really Good One...

As I purchased it, I was told that Walker 1903 Maps were sold as unframed prints at Hickorystick Farm for $10.

The mountains are labeled in the print. I'm very pleased with this purchase, and already have this one hanging on the wall.

I have one of the original printed maps also, all framed up at my lake place. Most that are around where printed for the Boston and Maine Railroad. Some from 1903, more common ones are the 1909 and 1925 versions. They came folded in a marketing piece.

About 5 years ago they started selling reproductions of the map, you could find them all around the lake in gift shops for about $10.

The cool thing about this map is that it is on line, and you can zoom to the detail of the map that is hard to discern from the printed maps. Maybe I didn't explain myself.

Look here for the asking price for the 1925 version. You can see that these are the folded Boston and Maine Railroad brochures. The one I have is the same map but a 1909 edition. I found it on E-Bay for $37.00, guy didn't know what he had.

Here is an example of the "repos" that are around. Note.. no folds.

If you have a copy of the orginal "folded" map, not a repo... you did real good for your $10!

We have a reprint. The detail is nothing like the link you posted. Thank You Steve.

Revision: I took a look at the print today in better light and it was better in detail than I thought. Aparently my eyes are not as good as the link you posted.

I used your link, but got more search terms. What exactly did you use to get that map?
Thanks in advance
