Hoen & Co.
Albert Fink was a German-born civil engineer who emigrated to the United States and soon found employment in the burgeoning railroad industry. This map shows the planned route of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad through the Appalachian Mountains to its terminus at Wheeling, then in Virginia, on the Ohio River. It would take two years from the time this map was printed for the railroad to complete its route linking Baltimore with the Ohio River.
