Title

US Hydrographic Office Map of Palmyra from 1897

Description

This map, based on material from the visit of the USS Portsmouth in 1874 and later material in 1897, was the primary resource used for navigating to and around Palmyra up until the US Navy took possession of the atoll in 1939 and significantly changed its geography.

This high resolution scan offers an incredible amount of detail, especially for studying the physical shape of Palmyra before the military's occupation.
