1920 School and Soil survey maps

The following maps were made in the nineteen-teens and published circa 1920. One has school district data superimposed on it and the other soil data from the landmark US Soil Survey. The school district map is from the Digital Durham project at Duke which also has several other fine maps. The soil map comes from the University of Alabama's excellent collection of nationwide historical soil maps . To view the full resolution soil map you will need a .jp2 viewer.
