Label of the Helsinki school district where the map was used? Date estimated based on presence of Singer Building of 1908 and absence of MetLife Tower of 1909 (thanks to Piotr Tarczynski for pointing this out to us). Birds-eye view of Manhattan and greater New York. From askArt: "Josef Ferdinand Klemm (Austrian, 1868-1916) was a noted painter, lithographer, designer and image restorer. He is primarily known for his finely detailed designs of cultural and historical mural study-decorations for schools that included landscapes, cityscapes, medieval cities, the Acropolis (Greece), various architectural renderings, memorial and national monuments, interior scenes, historical and cultural human genre/civil activities, as well as educational/industrial cut-away diagrams/wall-charts, geographical scenes, etc. Josef Klemm was born December 25, 1868 in Vienna, Austria to the Austrian bookseller and publisher Joseph Klemm (Austrian, b. Apr. 4, 1821-d. Feb. 27, 1882) and Johanna (née Fessl) Klemm." This copy came from a school in Helsinki, Finland.
