Old Yangoon (Rangoon) in 1914

Here is what Rangoon (Yangon) was look like in 1914. Yes, this is not a photo, this is a map! An old map showing the area of then Rangoon. Royal lake is the Kandawgyi, and the area marked in yellow is the Cantonment. You can see that Rangoon then was just the downtown area and around Kandawgyi Lake.

Hello Ko Myat Thura,
Do you have the high-resolution image of the map of Old Yangoon (Rangoon) in 1914?
I would like to get it for my project paper of Urban Development and history of Yangon.

Appreciate your blog!
