Old California Topographic Maps
Historical California topographic maps are quite popular. Especially popular if one was doing some mining research or just wanting to see where the old-west ghost-towns are supposed to be. But a vintage California topo map is a beautiful and unusual conversation piece in any setting.
Topographic maps have traditionally been created for engineering, energy exploration, natural resources conservation, environmental management, public works design, commercial and residential planning, and outdoor activities like hiking, camping, and fishing. While their original purpose was utilitarian, historical topo maps are rapidly becoming a hot addition to any room or office. Their contrasting colors draw the eye and enhance today's modern, eclectic, or traditional decor.
