  FEEFHS MAP ROOM - Background and MAP INDEX
Poland did not exist as a nation for about 126 years prior to the end of World War I. However the Austrian, German and Russian partitions of Poland are shown as parts of their respective Empires on the maps in this Map Rooom.
All of these maps show 19th century boundaries between countries and provinces (which some other maps do not).
The divisions of the Austro-Hungarian and German Empires are clearly shown, as are the Russian guberniyas.

  Maritime Provinces
One caution is the poor road signage in the Maritime Provinces, that made it difficult to know where certain roads would be intersecting or how far it was to a particular destination along that route or even what road you were on as the signs were not suitably located.
During the trip, we traveled on four ferries; the first from Digby, NS to St. John, NB, the second from Wood Islands, PEI to Pictou, NS, and the third was an overnight ferry from North Sydney, NS to Channel-Port-aux-Basques, NL and the last being the return overnight ferry from Newfoundland to Nova Scotia.
Visiting the Maritime Provinces was an excellent trip...we saw many different places, enjoyed the hospitality of the Canadian people, but I believe the people who live in the Maritime Provinces are the friendliest and warmest that I have come to know.

  Maritime Provinces
The Maritimes constitute a cluster of peninsulas and islands which form the northeastern extension of the Appalachian highlands and are also significantly affected by the Atlantic Ocean.
It may be argued that the Maritime provinces have never fully recovered psychologically from the traumatic experience of Confederation and the sudden end in the late 19th century of the golden age of "Wooden Ships and Iron Men" (see SHIPPING HISTORY).
Maritimers tended to remain quiet until those periods of extreme economic crisis when their discontent and their suspicion of "Upper Canada" and "Upper Canadians" could be channelled into regional political protest (see REPEAL MOVEMENT).

 Maritimes Information
The Maritime provinces, also the Canadian Maritimes or simply the Maritimes, is a region of eastern Canada on the Atlantic coast, consisting of the three provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island.
Maritime trading patterns shifted considerably from mainly trading with New England, Britain, and the Caribbean, to being focused on commerce with the Canadian interior, enforced by the federal government's tariff policies.
British settlement of the Maritimes, as the colonies of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island came to be known, accelerated throughout the late 18th century and into the 19th century with significant immigration to the region as a result of Scottish migrants displaced by the Highland Clearances and Irish escaping the potato famine.

 Maritime Provinces (Spain)
The maritime provinces went through many changes, but the most important Decree was the one of 1845, establishing the 36 provinces and their flags.
Many of these flags are today the actual municipal flags of the capital cities of the maritime provinces, and, of course, the origins of the local yacht clubs' burgees.
On August 5th, 1858, Motril ceases as a province, taking her ships the flag of Málaga, at the same time that Vivero is moved to Ribadeo, with the same flag and covering the same province.

But, given the importance of the sea in the economic history of Maritime Canada, it is surprising that there is little acknowledgment of the contributions of the fishery, shipbuilding, and seaborne trade and commerce to the regional economy in this collection.
The inclusion of an epilogue might have addressed these criticisms, by allowing a fuller explanation of the historiographical context of these essays than the introduction allows; this would have also provided the opportunity for a discussion of the thirteen authors' conclusions, which are sometimes less congruent than the editor implies in the introduction.
