Vintage Map Shows New York City's IRT Subway Lines in 1904

The Interborough Rapid Transit Company (IRT) was one of three major private transportation companies operating independently before they merged to become the City agency eventually known as the MTA in 1940. This vintage map from 1904 shows the Manhattan-based IRT's subway lines, most of which are still in use today under different monikers.
