Shipping to United States: Free

A print of The Iconic GARDINER'S CORNER SIGN in NANTUCKET, Massachusetts. The compass rose on the side of the building (Ralph Lauren) has attracted attention to Nantucket’s place in the world for about 75 years. It was created and put on the side of his store by H. Marshall Gardiner in the early 1930s, at a time when attention was needed to bring business not only into his own store, but to the Island itself. Indeed, Nantucket has long been linked to the larger outside world. In the days of whaling, Nantucket vessels were putting into ports such as Tahiti, Samoa and New Zealand. The whale oil brought back to Nantucket would travel on to light the lamps of London and the big cities of Europe. Nantucket vessels traveled to Hong Kong and Canton in the time of the China trade. {see a 1930's and 1950's photo of the sign on the Gardiner building in the image section, these are not for sale}

This print has been scanned From OUR ORIGINAL at 600 dpi using state of the art equipment. The replica map is printed on heavy matte fine art paper using archival pigment inks. This is one of over 5000 Original maps, charts and posters in our collection.
Many reproduction maps that are available on Etsy are taken directly from public domain sources {NY Public Library, Library of Congress, etc}. Although great for research purposes, these image files frequently suffer from poor color accuracy, lens blur and distortion. The maps in our collection have been scanned from the ORIGINAL, flat, at high resolution and with precisely calibrated color. This allows us to prints replicas that are virtually indistinguishable from the original maps.

Our maps and prints come with an approximately 3/4 inch white boarder around the image for the purpose of matting and protection of the map. The size is based on the image of the map.

Retailers who would like to carry our Maps an Prints, please contact us through the "ask a question" button in this listing, for information and discounts.
