This pair of 19th century urban plans will be welcome additions to the libraries of those researchers working on families with Philadelphia roots. The earlier map, issued by A. J. Johnson in 1872, shows the city divided into wards, and identifies cemeteries, some suburban areas and ferries to New Jersey. It also includes an inset map of greater Philadelphia. The later map, issued by S. A. Mitchell in 1879 and entitled A Plan of the City of Philadelphia and Camden, also shows wards and cemeteries, railway lines, ferries and identifies many public buildings in the downtown area.
