DIY Restoration Hardware-style Vintage Map

STEP 3: USE THE LOC GALLERY’S FILTER AND SEARCH FEATURES TO LOCATE AND SORT MAPS BY LOCATION, DATE AND SIZE


As we mentioned above, the LOC provides a great filter tool to help us choose from the over 4,000 vintage maps stored in digital high resolution format. Now it’s time to refer to the notes you scribbled down at RH.com. Are you like me? Do you fancy a vintage map of Paris or Chicago? No? Well too bad, those are the example we’re using. Feel free to choose your own adventure.

Because I’m looking for an 1800’s era vintage maps of Paris or Chicago, I’m going to only check the box next to Dates 1800 – 1899. After filtering out all maps outside this date range, the LOC collection provides us with over one thousand 19th Century digital maps to choose from. In the next step, we’ll zoom in on our chosen locations.

NEXT: YOU WANT A PARIS MAP? JUST TYPE IN “PARIS”.
