Bicycle Map of Montreal 1897

Just got this from a reader. Bicycle Map of Montreal from... 1897. From an insurance company (follow the money) but still brilliant to see the bicycle infrastructure back then.

Reminds us of the maps we got from Helsinki from 1937 showing cyclist counts on certain streets. Up to 10,000 cyclists on some streets back then.

Victoria, Canada also has a map from 1897, done by the Vancouver-based Province newspaper (which is still in print). It can be view in the UVic library catalogue here: http://voyager.library.uvic.ca/vwebv/holdingsInfo?bibId=1770154
