A week of maps: 6 Tainan

According to the back of the card this is an antique map of An-ping, according to the sender it's an ancient map of Tainan.  I, in my ignorance, didn't know they were much the same thing.  An-ping is now a district of Tainan, though until the 19th century it was a completely separate island.  Ocean currents changed and the lagoon between the island and mainland gradually silted up.
