My dad bought this beautiful 21×28 map of the Vineyard for me in 1959.

This hand colored print was done in 1926 by  painter, illustrator and cartoonist, Lloyd Coe.  I love the details and bits of historical information.

I’ve never seen this map again in any stores on MV.  Wonder if anyone else reading this has one ?

I'm married, I have two daughters and two grandchildren and they all love MV. Enjoy my MV blog and contact me if I can answer any questions. This blog started out as strictly about Martha's Vineyard but over the years I've branched out to include other obsessions and interests. I enjoy photography and like sharing my photos here as well. Hope you enjoy :)
