In ‘A Rough Trip to Rangoon in 1846’ (1) Colesworthy Grant noted his expedition to Rangoon in 1846. In that year, Rangoon was a cluster-pagoda city and small trading city for expatriate communities including English, Mundrazee, Chinese, Armenian, Jew, American, and Mogul.

This map tracks the cityscape in old town Rangoon between 1836 and 1849 produced from a resident’s memory and Grant’s journey, notes and sketches which are considered as historical interest, describing the relationship between one site to the others, especially the monumental ones.
