Map by Suomen Matkailija-Yhdistys (1897)

From "Suomi-Kartasto", a map book over Finland, collected by Suomen Matkailija-Yhdistys.

Interesting details in the map include planned road network in Töölö and "Linjat" in Hakaniemi that extend up to "Kuudes linja". Kaisaniemenkatu does not exist yet.

See photos over Helsinki from the year before.
