Rawalpindi - an Old Map from 1923

Got hold of this old map of Rawalpindi from a site some one put up, but is no longer there.

Now the Map says it is from 1954, but it is actually a reproduction of a map from 1923.

Here's a trip down Nostalgia Avenue for some friends who seemed to be interested in the history of the town. Here you would find the old names of places and some that are still retained. The most interesting are some of the unexpected buildings, which have been there since the times of the Gora. You have to click the map to Enlarge / Download.
