”Map collectors and enthusiasts have long known that maps are much more than navigational tools. They tell a story, promote an agenda, and tantalize our imagination. Maps, like any historical document, are products of their time and their creators. In the hands of a gifted cartographer, they are works of art without compare. By studying historic maps of Alabama, we gain insight into not only the physical changes of our state over the course of its history, but also into the constantly changing perceptions of who we are and who we want to be. Enjoy this exhibit that tells our story which, while not always pretty, is still ongoing and being written by all of us.“The Birmingham Public Library’s exhibit, Sweet Home: Alabama’s History in Maps, will be on display in the Loeb Reception Center at Old Alabama Town until June 23rd. Available for viewing Monday - Saturday, 9 am - 4 pm.
