Old City Maps

This page features old city maps from various sources such as Official Automobile Blue Books and ALA Green Guides. Generally, the greatest changes in the alignments of old roads occured in towns and cities. The roads and highways inside cities constantly change, and many auto trails and U.S. highways altered their routings over time.

If you have an old book or old map that features city insets, please contribute to the expansion of this resource. Please provide a high resolution or large size image, as well as the name of the city, the name of the state, and the date of the publication.
