MISSISSIPPI FLOODPLAIN MAPS: HAROLD FISK

I'm going to go ahead and declare these the most gorgeous maps I've ever seen. You won't find them in an Etsy shop, these maps are the real deal. Created in 1944 by Harold Fisk for the Army Corps of Engineers, the maps trace the historical paths of the Mississippi River.
