Rangoon Map 1912 | Myanmar Today
So if you are looking for the old map of Yangon (Rangoon) during the Colonization, either for research or university purposes, or just out of your own inquisitiveness, here is the map of Yangon (Rangoon) in 1912. One can see that Yangon was quite small in comparison to today's Yangon. Today's city map of Rangoon was obviously available as early as 1912.
Since April 1, 2012, the Central Bank of Myanmar has formally launched the Kyoto Protocol. This is the Myanmar Man's Diary Blogs post that has been re-published with authorization. This item..... Burma is a land full of historical, cultural, customs and traditions. If you want to be seen politely in Myanmar, you should be able to use the right song if you.....
Burma is a land of deeply entrenched customs and religions. The nightlife in Yangon is quite arid and dull for a newcomer. You will find further instructions on the Shwedagon Pagoda in our item Shwedagon Pagoda..... A number of sweepstakes exist in Myanmar (Burma), both legitimate and illicit.
It is important for Myanmar residents to hire a housemaid.

Like the story this weeks about Scott's square, as the square is now called after Bogyoke Aung San, its inner roads are called after the Aung San Thuriya Award winner - the highest honor in Myanmar, which in turn was called after Aung San. To find out more about the award and its winner, click here or on the top picture with an animated map of the town.
Scott's Market's former lessees had previously had stands in the Municipal Bazaar on Strand Rd, between today's Shwe Bon Thar and Shwedagon Pagoda Rd. The port commissioners in 1904 agreed to link the various new quays and docks along the riverbank, which led to a shift in the markets.
Commissioners purchased the property from the community, but instead of actually paying it off, it would be used to create a new, sustainable area. The Rangoon College was first established by the British in 1878, became Rangoon University in 1920 and Yangon University when the name of the capital was renamed in 1989.
His teaching was based on old English colleges such as Oxford and Cambridge and was designed to teach young Myanmar's elite their beliefs and beliefs - but instead became a breeding ground of anti-colonialism and an impetus for outrage. A ( "slightly experimental") map that shows you what a 1914 map of Rangoon looks like compared to Yangon today in Open Street Map.
The two most favoured sport among UK troops were soccer and pugilism, and the first organized soccer division took place in 1894, won by the West Yorkshire Regiment. The matches were usually held on the teams' own courts or on the municipal area. There are other historic springs that date the primitive one somewhere between the sixth and tenth century, but either way the mound was completed and enlarged by various royalty who over the course of the century strived for earnings and was first plated in solid golden paint by the illustrious widowedess Shin Saw Pu.
It was the northwestern entry to the small city of Rangoon, which was then located on an encircled boggy islet. Deaths exited the city through this door, as did sentenced perpetrators who were taken to the area. The picture shows the view to the southwards along Sule Piago Street, to the Mt. and to the firehouse.
Nowadays it is part of the Sule Shangri-la Hotels leg. Not surprisingly for such a key part of the town, there is much story in the between. The revenues were shared between the UK municipality and the UK Emperor's Indian authorities to whom it was reporting.
As a rule, the distribution was by sectors; gains from strategically important core sectors were managed from a central location, less important ones by the municipalities. The general accountant was responsible for ensuring that the proceeds were properly recovered and sent to British India and that the regulations on how the rest could be disbursed were followed.
From Sule Pagoda, this eastward look shows three interesting buildings: The Ripon Hell, which served as Rangoon Municipal Council and later passed through today's Rowe and Co. We are talking here about the Rathaus, whose project represents a success in resisting Britain's architecture domination, and the Baptist churches.
