Old Map of Colombo, Sri Lanka from 1895

This is our latest finding - a reasonable quality map showing Colombo, Sri Lanka in 1895.The map was created by Friedrich Arnold Brockhaus (sounds like a German/Dutch name to me) using original colour lithograph technique.

The map itself shows major landmarks in the city, as well as the location of major buildings and main roads along with their name. There is a quote at the bottom of the map, apparently it is originated from a  London-based printing house.
