Manitoba Historical Maps

“Manitoba has a rich legacy of cartographic material, printed throughout the progression from Rupert’s Land to Postage Stamp Province to Gateway to the West.

While the cartographic material is numerous, its location is scattered throughout many different institutions, including Library and Archives Canada, Archives of Manitoba and the University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections, not to mention many other specialized collections scattered throughout the province.

The goal of the historical maps of Manitoba digital collection will be the ongoing, identification, location, scanning and displaying of these intriguing images over the Internet.” (L. Laliberte, 2008)

CanadasHistory.ca interviewed Larry Laliberte about his work on the  Historical Maps of Manitoba Flickr project and the increased use of social media methods as a medium to share these important cartographic historical documents.

You can view the full interview from the embeded video on the  CanadasHistory.ca website.

Scanned historical maps of Manitoba in the large collection include old city maps, planning maps, transit maps, insurance maps, highway maps, topographic maps and many more.

Due to the age of publication, most of the Manitoba maps available online have public domain status, meaning they can be shared widely with anyone and in any format.

I encourage you to check out the Historical Maps  of Manitoba Flickr site your self and browse through the hundreds of scanned historic map images.
