Stare Miasto Cadastral Map 1890

http://maps.geshergalicia.org/cadastral/stare-miasto-1890/

A selectively-colored cadastral map of the village of Stare Miasto (of
the Gmina Lezajsk), with the hamlet of Przychojec, surveyed in 1890 in
Galicia, today in Poland.

This excerpt includes all of the southern and central lands, and all
residential areas. This later map uses Polish language throughout,
acknowledging the greater autonomy of Galicia within the Empire. A
working intermediate-stage map, this print uses an earlier lithograph
as base for field updates, and each sheet was quartered and
board-backed for folding so it could be easily carried and deployed in
the field with in-situ revisions. This small village has no visible
center, but the map clearly shows developing residential centers in
several locations, plus a church and a few large estates. Images for
this map were provided to Gesher Galicia by the Archiwum Panstwowe w
Rzeszowie in Poland.
