Won't You Take Me to Cuddle Town?

From our sister site Vox, This 1845 marriage map by Philadelphia portrait artist John Dainty, once available in bookstores nationwide, "takes the familiar emotional geography of marriage and lends it cartographic precision." Follow the map from the Lazy River of Youth, to Courtship Bay, then, if you're really lucky, matrimony will lead you right past Hymen's Alter onto the "Elysian Fields of matrimony, surrounded by Respect, Harmony, and Goodwill."
