What Baltimore looked like in 1801 [MAP]

Screenshot of map via the University of Richmond Digital Scholarship Lab's online Atlas of the Historical Geography of the United States.

How does the size of Baltimore city in the early 19th century compare with how the city looks today?

A new project from the University of Richmond’s Digital Scholarship Lab shows a map of Baltimore in 1801 that overlays a map of the current city limits.

View the map here.

The Atlantic Cities has more:

Just before the holidays, the University of Richmond’s Digital Scholarship Lab unveiled an ambitious project bringing the entire [Atlas of the Historical Geography of the United States] online, complete with the kind of digital enhancements that were never available in [Charles O.] Paullin and [John K.] Wright’s day. The old paper maps have been geo-rectified so that they can be viewed atop digital maps.

There are similar then-and-now maps for Philadelphia, New York City, Boston and other cities.

Read more about the project at the Atlantic Cities.
