In response to our indefatigable Pamela...

The 1849 map is a wonderful source for research. Our family dwelt at
Peltewna St. The map gave us the parcel number -- 2277. Using the
parcel number a bulk of documents stored in the Tabula register
discovered many many details about the family day to day life. The map
also unrevealed where the family soap factory was located in the house

The map gives us a good picture of the many synagogues in the area.
On the south-western corner of Theodore's Square, one can see the
Jacob Glanzer. It was built in 1841-1844. The other synagogues visible
in the cadastral map in that area are the Beit Midrash of the Suburb (to
the southeast of Jakub Glanzer) and the Great Synagogue of the Suburb
(further to the southeast). The Temple is located to the east of this
group, on the eastern side of Zolkwier Haupt Strasse (Zolkiewska).
Knowing the prayer places one can look if there exist documents about
the congregation.

So thank you Gesher Galicia and hurray to Jay Osborn.

Jewish and Christian cemeteries, military and other imperial facilities,
theaters, parks, schools, and more, with many named streets and
