This is the Charles P. Varle 1801 map, the embed made available through the David Ramsey Historical Map Collection. Unlike the Philadelphia Interactive Image Map on this site, this embed presents the entire Varle map for leisurely study without the icon or info bubble features. The map is an 1801 glimpse of the Philadelphia street plan post revolution at the turn of the century. The merchants of Philadelphia, Boston and New York were deeply engaged in the China Trade and a new nation had joined the world community.
