New – US chart of the Harbor of Hyannis, Cape Cod

This 1850 (pre Civil War) US coastal survey chart of the harbor (and town) of Hyannis, Cape Cod, includes not just hydrographic information but also includes full sailing directions into the harbor.

The chart comes complete with original handwritten inscriptions and comments as well as containing excellent detail of what the town of Hyannis looked like 160 years ago.  Individual houses and land divisions are included as well as..well, church spires.

Actually, it’s not really that much different from today.. (more inspired holiday snaps!)

Hyannis. Nice place – worth a visit. Gateway to Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard..

This chart will be published in full on the Heritage Charts web-site: www.heritagecharts.com shortly.

    I enjoy the info you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I
    get home. I’m shocked at how fast your blog loaded on my
    mobile .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, amazing site!
