Just posted on the Gesher Galicia Map Room: A full-color 1853
cadastral map of the city of Sambor (now Sambir in western Ukraine):

Covering the entire central business and residential section of the
city, this map shows how established Sambir was even more than 150
years ago. Precisely drawn features in and around the center include a
well-developed market square, a distinct Jewish quarter with two
cemeteries and a marked synagogue, several major churches and a large
Christian cemetery, plus many named streets and other architectural
features of a mature city.

Anyone can use the online map for free, and explore the past of this
important Galician city which is still one of the key cities in its
region. The image attached to this post is a low-resolution preview;

This stitched digital composite map was assembled and presented in
interactive format by Gesher Galicia. The original paper map is
preserved by the Central State Historical Archives of Ukraine in Lviv
(TsDIAL). To see many more cadastral maps of Galician cities, towns,
