Map, North Holland, South Holland and Utrecht – NL, J.B. Wolters – Groningen, The Netherlands, 1927
North Holland, South Holland and Utrecht 1:400,000. Originally from: “Schoolatlas der geheele aarde”. First published in 1877. 31st edition, from 1927. By J.B. Wolters – Groningen, The Netherlands. Geographical survey maps (scale < 1:500,000), education, atlases, world atlases (form), teaching aids (form), cartography.
Size: ± 37 x 45 cm.
Provincial maps: the bright red built-up areas for towns with more than 20,000 inhabitants are now replaced by a less conspicuous hue. Kwast reports that he used as a source for the spelling of the geographical names the list by Ph.G. Rapp published in 1927, the Naamlijst van gemeenten, bewoonde oorden en huizengroepen in Nederland (Topografische Inrichting: 's-Gravenhage, 1927). This changed Boxtel to 'Bokstel', Texel to 'Tessel'. Names ending in '-lo' were changed again to '-loo': 'Almeloo', 'Borculoo'.
In Rotterdam, industrial buildings west of the Waalhaven have now also been included in the conurbation. In The Hague, development near Scheveningen has been extended to the coast. In the Gooi, Hilversum has grown towards Laren. A new form of traffic has made its entry: in the Haarlemmermeer, the Schiphol Airfield is marked, and between Bilthoven and Huis ter Heide the Soesterberg Airfield, near Rotterdam the Waalhaven Airfield. If you look closely between The Hague and Leiden, you can see changes in soil types: a new geological map of The Hague and its surroundings had been released, which Kwast used as a source for this.
