Just posted on the Gesher Galicia Map Room: A full-color 1852
cadastral map of the small Galician town of Medyka (now a Polish
border checkpoint for crossing to and from Ukraine):

In addition to its modern importance as a border town, Medyka has
historical importance as a stopping point on the road (and later rail
line) between the major Galician cities of Przemyśl and
Lemberg/Lwów/Lviv. Despite its small size, two decades before the town
was surveyed in 1852 it already had established what was probably the
first formal gardening school in Galicia; the variety of
well-developed garden sections are shown in beautiful detail just
north of the residential center on this historical map.

This stitched digital composite map was assembled and presented in
interactive format by Gesher Galicia. Images for this historical map
were provided to Gesher Galicia by the Archiwum Państwowe w Przemyślu.
