Gulf of Maine Chart, 1853

The Gulf of Maine is shown in this part of a much larger chart, Gulf and River St. Lawrence, including the Coast from Breton Island to Cape Cod and the Island & Banks of Newfoundland. The chart was published by the well-known chart maker James Imray of London in 1853. By today's standards these charts have nowhere near the detail that we are accustomed to on our harbor and near coast charts, but they did serve to plan voyages and plot positions of the ship at sea.
