Vintage Maps, a lasting gift.

One of the most intriguing items at Whispering Woods Gallery is the historic map collection portal. We offer your favorite maps from all over Bucks and Montgomery Counties, Philadelphia, NJ Shore points, New York City, and all over the USA.  Let’s take it a bit further.  We offer over 1.6 million maps from all over the world!  We offer our maps unframed but we suggest letting us frame them to look their best to last for generations.  These maps are printed to your specifications.  Want to give it a spin? Go to our map site to look for US Maps.  Looking for a world map or something a little different? This page will let you travel the world!

One of my favorite types of vintage maps is the “Birdseye View.” These maps were made in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Sometimes referred as aero or panoramic views, they are non-photographic maps of cities and towns from above. See the Margate map below. Want to search for your town? Search here  for “Birdseye View” maps. Just put in the state that you are interested in, to get going.

That 70’s Stuff!

We see a lot of 70’s stitchery come in for framing.  As a stitcher in the 70’s, I know it well and love it!  The color palette of the stitching is usually bright, clear and cheerful but in most cases it has been poorly framed. Here is a recent project framed for Mary of Horsham.  Mary was delighted and will hang it in her dining room.

A trip to the shore
