These maps were originally drawn in 1933 by Courtland Smith based on ideas and historical information compiled by Richard Foster. Courtland Smith was an noted architect on Long Island working at that occupation for a remarkable 70 years. Although Smith designed dozens of homes throughout the Hamptons, according to his obituary in the Southampton Press, Smith’s best-known work was the pictorial Map of Long Island. It has remained "a steady seller in gift shops throughout Long Island for more than 75 years."
