An interesting map of Gothenburg in western Sweden published during the great expansion of the city outside the moat - its historic outer boundrary - which began in the late 19th century. Haga, is fully developed and Masthugget, Anedal, Landala and the areas around Vasagatan and Kungsportsavenyn are partly built up. Large areas are designated for development on the map. The built up areas and the planned developments are clearly marked in different colours. A larger version of the map was published the same year. It has an inset of Gamlestaden in the top left corner. The text is a an index of street names, squares, public buildings, restaurants, churches, firehouses, prisons, the poor house, hotels, hospitals, train stations etc. A very uncommon map.
