St Andrews is a proud owner of a complete copy of the Popple Atlas, or Henry Popple’s A map of the British Empire in America. We’ve chosen this atlas for this 4th of July post because it is the first large-scale map of North America, and it is truly a beauty to behold.

Way too big to post, but a 'Birds Eye' map of Ottawa from 1895. https://i.imgur.com/pAjZobb.jpg

There seemed to be a lot of these back then. Really cool to see places you know and spot the differences.
