Connecticut Railroad Valuation Maps

The University of Connecticut (uConn) and the Connecticut State Data Center (CTSDC) have done a wonderful job of providing access to a large series of 1915 New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad Valuation Maps.

The Google-Driven interactive map to navigate through this series is truly a work of art!

I have colorized a few map selections of locations I am somewhat familiar with (and partial too :-) ). Click on any image to enlarge.
