NOAA Photo Library Image - cgs05050

Section of SE sheet of six sheets of New York Bay and Harbor showing current table and scales of both statute miles and a scale of yards. The bottom-most scale divides minutes of longitude into ten-second intervals. Although the minutes of latitude are also divided into ten second divisions, there is no scale for nautical miles perhaps reflecting Hassler's Swiss terrestrial roots.
