Old map of the Great Lakes - Superior, Michigan, Huron, Ontario, and Erie, first published 1836, republished 2018. Western territory is clearly illustrated, including Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia, with Upper and Lower Canada.
The Great Lakes, also known as the Laurentian Great Lakes, are a series of freshwater lakes that are interconnected. From the Niagara River, water passes over the falls to the Great Lakes, and then to the final of the lakes, Lake Ontario. From here the St Lawrence River flows to the Atlantic Ocean. They form the largest group of freshwater lakes on Earth by total area. The lakes began to form approximately 14,000 years ago. During the glacial period ice sheets carved basins in to the land, and as these sheets melted, the basins filled with water.

We make our own frames from moulding hand finished in our workshops. The standard finish is a distressed black with a gold slip inserted for the larger maps.
We finish the moulding in two other colours, Antique Red and Antique Green. These colours can be used on any of our prints or maps, both reproductions and originals, but have been chosen specifically to suit some of the antique prints and illustrations.
Some of the maps are very big so for weight, shipping and safety reasons we use 3mm acrylic as the glazing material.
