Map of Landour, Mussoorie, India

This is a scan of a paper map I have in storage somewhere (I hope – I need to do a better scan if I can find it again), showing part of Landour and Mussoorie, where Woodstock School is located. Click to enlarge the picture, and you’ll see that many of the homes have names, dating back to the British founders of the town who built them, usually as holiday getaways from the heat of the Indian plains. Walter Scott was popular in those days, so names were often taken from his books (which seems odd in modern India, but lends an air of quaint antiquity).
