18th Century Maps of Saint Quentin-sur-Indrois, Touraine Region, France


Below are two different maps of Saint Quintin, the Indre River and surrounding communities in the South Touraine, c1750-80.

I love the Indre valley at this point in its meandering journey especially when, in spring, the buds on the small wood plantations are just appearing.

The maps come from the terrific online collection of maps, images and documents at the French Ministry of Culture’s web site.

To see larger versions of the maps below just click on an image:
