This is a vintage map of Ireland with old woodcut prints, "Cork to New York." The map is dated from 1797. The two images date from early to mid-1800s. The images are woodcut prints, not photographs, because photography simply had not been invented yet! One shows emigrants preparing to leave their families and friends. The other, titled "Departure," shows the passengers on the steamship as it is leaving the dock.
