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

What we're looking at here may be an in-progress copy, or a proof of some sort, of a birdseye that Pezolt was working on for the city of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Unless I'm mistaken, it's a quarter-sized and unfinished version of this map.

I'd love further info proving or disproving this theory. If this is correct, this is the only in-progress birdseye that I've ever come across.

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