[BALTIMORE CITY] Atlas of the City of Baltimore, MD - 1897 [SINGLE SHEETS]

During the years 1893-1896 the Baltimore City Topographical Survey published 39 separate topographic maps covering all areas within the boundaries of Baltimore City. Each map sheet covers one quadrant of a pre-defined grid system. The scale of each map sheet is 1:2,400 (1 inch = 200 feet) and the contour interval is five feet. The name(s) of the responsible cartographer(s) appear on each sheet along with the month and year that their work was completed. Cartographers include Thos. M. Ward, Malcolm A. Cudlipp, W.A. Wansleben, Frank K. Duncan, R.A. MacGregor and Wm. Bauman Jr. In 1897 all 39 of the individually map sheets published from 1893 –1896 were bound together to form a single volume titled “Atlas of the City of Baltimore, MD”. Images from the bound volume are also posted in JScholarship at https://jscholarship.library.jhu.edu/handle/1774.2/32745. The images posted here are from the separate topographic map sheets held by the Johns Hopkins, George Peabody Library. The size of each separate topographic map sheets is about 36 inches tall x 33 inches wide. Two of the sheets in the George Peabody Library (sheet 1N-1W and sheet 3N-1E) are photocopies. The library does not have original copies of these two sheets. As a result, posted here for sheet 1N-1W and 3N-1E are scans obtained from the original map sheets held by the American Geographical Society (AGS) Library at the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee. ¬¬¬¬¬¬We are indebted to the AGS staff for helping us make these images available.
