This map isn't part of any series, but we have other maps of Maryland that you might want to check out.

Oriole Cafeteria's cartoon map of Baltimore, Maryland [gmap] in 1947 is marred, a bit, by some unfortunate racist “blackface” imagery.

A note of thanks:
This image is from Johns Hopkins' Sheridan Libraries, who are to be commended for doing the right thing and sharing their maps. It is my hope that other institutions will come to share this progressive vision for the constructive stewardship of their collections. If you'd like to show your support for their forward-thinking policies, one thing that I know would be apreciated would be to donate to their cause.

For more map resources and imagery from this period in Baltimore's history, check out the Maryland Historical Society's website.
