Default Old International Border Maps...

So I scored these maps...3 maps actually... From the International Boundary Commission (In Ottawa and DC)... Original 1908 drawings on parchment paper... Had them scanned... This is one tiny part of the Abby, Tamihi and Osoyoos ones... The interesting part is that (obviously) very few of the present day roads are shown, and you'll easily spot the changes that occurred in the last 100 years !!!

I posted them here at Flickr for greater clarity:

Cool find!

I have an first edition national topo for Chilliwack Lake from 1955. It's really interesting to compare to its modern counterpart.
