Description


This is a 1910 Eugenio Bisbal and Juan Vassallo city plan or map of Madrid, Spain. The map depicts the city from the Lago de Patinar to the Colonia Oriental and from the Asilo de la Paloma to Termino de Villaverde. Highly detailed, the city is divided into ten districts, each of which is shaded a different color to allow for easy differentiation. Buildings throughout the city are illustrated and colored red, making them stand out against the rest of the color. Schools, hospitals, government buildings, churches, and train stations are all identified. Myriad streets are illustrated and labeled as well, as are the city's many parks and the Rio Manzanares.
