How did they do it? Mapmaking in the early Nineteenth Century

 

Lost in Niagara 200 years ago? Well, here is a map to help you out. Don't forget to wave to the fellas in Fort Drummond on the Limestone Heights before passing through the Black Swamp. It costs a shilling to cross Gees Bridge if you plan on going to Canby Town.
