1890/1899. Plan of Rangoon Town. 

 

Map of Rangoon Town, (currently known as Yangon City) during the British colony period in Burma (currently known as Myanmar).  After the military coup in the 60s many of Yangon’s street names were renamed, almost as a way to reclaim the Burmese identity of the streets from its previous Westernisation. Many streets in downtown Yangon however – such as Merchant Street and Strand Road – have continued to retain their English names.
