Map from the Lawrence City Directory, Mid-1800s

This map was included in a city directory of Lawrence. It can be used to show how Lawrence grew as a city centered around its mill industry. In comparison to a map of Andover (available for purchase from the Andover and North Andover Historical Societies), the orderly mill complexes and boardinghouses present a markedly “planned” layout.
