Description

J. Sage & Sons' New and Reliable Railroad Map, Travellers Edition, Eastern.

In the 1850's New England railroads were gaining much attention, as farmers and manufacturers of the region were realizing new hopes and possibilities.

Before the railroads, farmers of New England were largely producing crops for local use and not marketing to the larger markets at Boston, New York or Philadelphia much at all. Manufactured goods, such as furniture, tools, textiles and soaps, were mainly sold to local markets. With the added New England railroads of the mid-1800's, manufacturers and farmers were able to easily ship goods to most other parts of the country.

With new farming areas in the western states now competing with New England farmers for production of staples, New England farmers began concentrating on cultivating products used in the making of local manufactures including potash, charcoal, and pearlash.

Tobacco began to be grown vigorously in New England during this time.

Boston was one of America’s largest trading and industrial centers in the late 1850's. Many immigrants from Europe and elsewhere relocated to Boston to work in its numerous factories during this era.

This map features the northeastern United States, including Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Connecticut. An inset map displays the Boston Harbor region. The map published in 1859 by Sage & Sons indicates stations and towns along the completed New England railroad lines.
