View of Waltham from 1875

Boston & Beyond

If you’ve ever imagined yourself in a hot air balloon you will have an idea of the views given in bird’s eye maps. The Boston Public Library’s Leventhal Map Center has an exhibit through the end of June of such maps from all over New England. There is even one of Waltham, done in 1877. Of course, The Waltham Public Library’s Local History room also has its own version, called View of Waltham, done in 1875. Come in to the library to see if you can spot any differences in the two versions, which we currently have on display outside the Waltham Room.
