Where can I find a Wall Map on STX?
Does anyone know if there is a place on island that sells wall maps of the Caribbean? I looked on-line, but the one that I liked wanted to charge me 17 dollars to ship a 25 dollar map?
If you want a reproduction of a 1767 map of STX, check out the Library of Congress (www.loc.gov).
Put "st croix map" in the search box. The second search result heading will say U.S. Historical Cultural Collections. #2 will say Tiforand....(It's all in Danish)
I bought two copies of this map from the LOC about 7 years ago. One copy was on glossy photo paper (18"x24") and the other on regular paper (19"x29" the actual size of the map). Both have amazing detail and color. The regular paper one has a "treasure map" quality to it but will obviously fade over time.
I took a copy of this map to the St. Croix Landmarks Society at the Whim and they showed me their copy of the actual original that was not colorized. Someone colorized the Estates later and that version was the one the LOC acquired.
Hey! I know what building that is... just didn't know the name..
I went on vacation to Christiansted today! I bought a tank top at Purple Papaya, stopped in to visit the dog at SCUBA, went to the animal shelter flea market and hit Food TOn on my way home. Wow.. what a long drive. 🙂
