For summer 2023 - we are introducing a new artisanal puzzle series - Historic New England. Our first in this new series is an amazing 1912 lithograph of Canobie Lake Park in Salem, NH by the great lithographic firm George H. Walker & Co if Boston.

About Canobie Lake Park
The Park opened in the Summer of 1902 along Salem, New Hampshire’s Canobie Lake. It was developed by the Hudson, Pelham & Salem Railways (HP&S) as a means of generating additional passenger business for its new trolley line to Salem (Such “trolley parks” were a common marketing tool used by rail and trolley companies in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.). In the background can be seen the regional trolley lines connecting the park with the thriving industrial centers of Haverhill, Lawrence, Lowell and Nashua, for whose populace the Park was built.

About George H Walker & Co
Among other output, Walker issued atlases of Massachusetts and of Essex County, numerous maps of Boston and its metropolitan area, and promotional birds-eye views of Boston, Edgartown, Bar Harbor, Lake Winnipesaukee, Mount Washington and elsewhere. All are sought after for their vibrant use of color, enlivening details and considerable documentary value.

These unique, historic puzzles are exclusive to New England Sketch Book and only available through our onsite location in Newburyport or via our online shop.
