    Alright -- I fully admit I don't really know what I have here, other than what the title says -- old atlas pages showing parts of Chicago, Illinois.

    They are numbered (page?) 15 - 37, twelve sheets total, but the word 'sheets' is figurative since they're actually all printed on card stock, showing evidence that they used to be bound presumably with others between covers, now gone. They are large, measuring 24" x 33". They are marked "Pettrers Atlas of Chicago COPYRIGHT SECURED" (I think that's what the name is?) but I haven't fond any actual copyright (or other) date on any, and the googles haven't helped me with that name.

    First pic is 1st (currently) page, 2nd is closeup of the name, 3rd is a couple pages in the middle, 4th is the (current) back.

    Does anybody have a further clue for me??

      THANKS MUCHLY to Watchsearcher, Brunswick, Vynil33rpm, fortapache, & vetraio50 for your <love it>s!!

      I'm still looking for clues about what these are and if they're "a thing" or not . . . ?? (and/or what on earth *to do* with 'em...I suppose they'd look kinda cool framed but that'd require separating 'em completely, not sure if I should do that...??)
