New on the Gesher Galicia Map Room: An 1845 cadastral map of the
center of Pomorzany (now Pomoriany in western Ukraine):

It's an unusual record, held in a Polish national archive despite its
geographic subject being located in Ukraine. Only a single sheet of
the full map is available, but that sheet fortunately covers the
center of the town, and features the market square, two churches and a
large synagogue, a mill, many residential and commercial buildings,
plus the castle for which the town is still famous. The page title
calls it a copy, and both the sheet format and the label lettering
suggest this excerpt was drafted well after the 1845 survey map from
which it was copied. The original paper map is preserved by the
Archiwum Narodowe w Krakowie; the digital copy was brought to our
attention by Philip Rosinsky.
