[Atlas]

[Stockholm Sewer System / Avloppssystem]

Ca. 1931- 1932. Oblong folio 63 x 93 cm. 12 unfolded maps.

Cloth binding. Strings hold the maps in place which make them easy to replace when updates arrive. Some of the string holding the maps is missing, A few dents and scratches to the binding. A couple of creases to the maps. Nice condition.

A very interesting atlas of the sewer system in Stockholm in the early 1930s. No treatment of the raw waste existed. We can clearly see drains everywhere terminating in the water areas. The first treatment plant was built in 1934 in Åkeshov in northwest Stockholm, it is not present in this atlas. The vaste pipes are marked in strong black colour and superimposed on the the atlas maps of "Stockholms stad med omnejd i 12 blad" by Hellberg and Påhlman. With all probability the pesent atlas was for local government use only. Very few copies must have been made, maybe just this one. The atlas cover not only the county of Stockholm but also parts of surrounding counties, the waste piping in those counties are not marked on the maps, Stockholm only.
