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

I wish I could find more maps by this J. Thomas Williams guy. If this birdseye of Harrisburg [gmap], the state capital of Pennsylvania, is any indication, the guy was more than a bit skilled.

As far as one-off birdseye artists go, this guy might have the best map on the site. Here's hoping that changes; I'd love to see more from him.

For more map resources and imagery from this period in Harrisburg's history, check out the Historical Society of Pennsylvania's website.
