Hârlău Map #romania

Hi Sharon, I've found one street map of Harlau published in 1926 (attached). Only the main streets are labeled, along with some notable buildings. If you compare it to the modern layout of the city in Google Maps  https://www.google.com/maps/@47.4281677,26.9070621,15z you'll see that some of the main roads retain variants of their old names, so you can figure out where you are.  The website on which this map is found https://harlau525tomul2.wordpress.com/2020/05/23/un-plan-a-harlaului-din-1926/ describes it this way: "In a school textbook from 1926 intended for students from Botoșani county, there is a street plan of the city of Hârlău." 

During my search I found a number of late 19th and early 20th c. city maps of the larger city of Iasi--let me know if those would be helpful.
