Map covers two sheets of paper, which, when laid side by side, show an area in southern Iraq. Weston seems to have been concerned primarily with the water in the area, carefully labeling all the marshes, canals and rivers (including the Tigris river) and adding notes such as "flat open plain, liable to inundation."
Hand drawn map of an area in southern Iraq, 1916 Oct. 25. Harold Weston papers, 1894-1978, bulk, 1912-1972. Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution.
