DELAWARE OFFICIAL MAPS

Notes:
DelDOT reports a 1989 map and a 1991 map. These maps are listed here as 1988 and 1990 based on the copyright dates.

One interesting Delaware map has a copyright date of 1971, yet shows Sherman Tribbitt as the governor on the back cover. Gov. Tribbitt was in office from 1973 to 1977, so the map must be from this time period. Comparing road construction to the 1971 and 1973 maps seems to put it as a 1972. Perhaps it was done in late 1972 after the election but before he took office. The cover shows a photo of the Old Court House, New Castle.
