The Harvard Map Collection has two maps of Keijo (Seoul) from the 1930s:

(1) A 1931 Japan Tourist Bureau, Chosen Branch 
map of Keijo in English. It has many 
illustrations, an inset of Keijo and vicinity, 
and lots of textual information for sightseers on the verso.

(2) A 1942 Army Map Service reprint of a 1934 
Japanese map of the city at a scale of 1:10,000 (in Japanese).
