    Map of Allied-occupied Vienna (second edition, June 1945), sheet-size 91.5 x 63 cm, printed in colours, key to buildings on verso, sheet identified in coloured pencil on verso, pin-holes to corners where displayed. The Prater Park with its famous giant wheel is a fraction to the east of the city centre, just off the map, but it is still Harry Lime’s Vienna; or, as this is a British military map, it might more properly be thought of as Major Calloway’s. It was reprinted by 19th Field Survey Company, R.E. which was transferred to Vienna from Italy.
