1935 Map of Juvenile Delinquents in Washington

This is totally fascinating. GoDCer, and early contributor, John sent along an awesome site, which is a gold mine for old maps. This is one of our early favorites.

It is a map from 1935, plotting all the residences housing a juvenile delinquent, according to the Juvenile Court of the District of Columbia.
