This original nautical chart of Muskeget Channel, dated 1855, is from the U.S. Coast Survey collection. There is an engraving on the left side of the Cape Poge Light. In the bottom right corner are two views of the approach into the Harbor of Holmes Hole and Muskeget Channel. These charts were intended for navigational purposes by sea captains and included information relative to tides, soundings, lighthouses, sailing directions with noted danger areas and other pertinent data. This chart is tinted and in good condition with some minor foxing on the fold lines. The framing is done to conservation standards with an attractive burl wood frame.
