Map and plat book of Winnebago County, Wisconsin: containing plats and diagrams of every city, town and village in the county ... Gorman and Saudea, 1909.
This atlas has city maps show wards, railroads and streetcar lines as well as streets. Not as detailed as the other two, but still useful. Since the whole city is on one page, the wide space between the Sixth and Twelfth wards really shows.
