The folks at the University of Louisville Libraries have created a cartographic trove that will excite and delight historians, urbanologists, and geographers everywhere. This collection contains three atlases of Louisville and environs in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, along with 74 additional maps from the Lafon Allen Kentucky Maps Collection. Mr. Allen was a son of Kentucky who was an inveterate map collector throughout his life. Visitors to the site can browse all maps by date, or they can view useful indices for the 1876, 1884, and 1913 atlases of Louisville included here. Those persons seeking a bit of background material should read the astute commentary offered by Tom Owen in the About the Collection section.
