Description

This map depicts the city of Lviv at the beginning of the 20th century.

It can be assumed that the graphic depiction of the city was made on the basis of two previous maps created in 1890 and 1895 by Jozef Chowaniec (Józef Chowaniec), Adjunct Engineer at the Building Office of the Lviv Magistrate.

The map was printed by the Antony Przyszlak (A. Przyszlak) Lithographers.

The unique feature of this map is that it shows changes in the administrative divisions of the city which were implemented at the turn of the 20th century.

Legend:

  • In the upper right corner is the name: “Royal Capital City of Lviv” (Plan król. stoł. miasta Lwowa).
  • Below the name is a graphic depiction of the map’s scale.
  • In the lower right corner is information on the publisher: “A. Przyszlak Lithographers, Lviv” (Lit. A. Przyszlak. Lwów).
  • In the lower left corner is a list of the 100 objects identified on the map.
