Best map of Philly in the Rumsey collection
Some details I enjoyed…
Apparently there was a water works at the central square? (Then called the “Public Square”.)
The Navy Yard was quite literally a yard owned by the Navy.

This one confuses me. Washington Square and Market Square… in West Philly? What’s that oval?
