David's excellent new mapping feature has spurred me into finishing a minor project which has lain in my bottom drawer unfinished for the best part of ten years.
It is a sketch map of the City of Victoria dated as 'corrected to 1905'. It was published in the Hongkong section of the Directory & Chronicle of China, Japan, Corea etc etc. (1906 edition). The map featured has been recreated by digitally combining several separate microfilm-reader printer pages together. Some minor enhancement work has also been done, mainly the erasure of ink and reflection blotches which were notorious from early generation microfilm printers.
The map is broadly similar to GWULU's 1909 map but this a slightly earlier version, prepared by a different cartographer, which might provide some different features useful to forum members. It also covers as far east as Causeway Bay.
There is a coloured version of this map in the 1905 edition of the Directory & Chronicle. This edition of the Directory is freely available on line in pdf file format, from Google Books, having been scanned by the University of Michigan. Unfortunately the scanner (or person operating it) did not take into account folded pages so we end up viewing a photo-scan of the unfolded map. Highly irrigating ! Anyone have the time to go and have another go at reproducing the coloured map in full as well as very useful early maps of other Chinese cities and Treaty ports?
