This map isn't part of any series, but we have other maps of the Mississippi River that you might want to check out.

Of the many "Ribbon Maps" we have on this site that depict the Missisippi River from St. Louis to New Orleans, this one by St. Louis firm Coloney and Fairchild gets the prize for taking the physical form of such a map to an extreme.

The original, according to the Library of Congress is 2.75 inches × 11 feet (7cm × 3.3m).

I've broken a soft rule of the site by splitting the original into two parts, just so there's some semblance of a way to display it online.
