Linked below is an image of Kazimierz Staszewski's 1913 sketch of a map identifying 77 Jewish property owners and their properties in Płock, Poland in 1803, "Plan von der Judenstadt in Plock, aufgenommen im Monath Aprill 1803 durch Schmid." The image was provided by the Biblioteka im. Zielińskich Towarzystwa Naukowego Płockiego. A transcription of the property owners compiled by appears in the linked Excel spreadsheet. first saw this map as a largely illegible reproduction in the book Plany i pomiary miasta Płocka oraz gruntów podmiejskich od roku 1793 do lat ostatnich, by Kazimierz Staszewski, published by Towarzystwa Naukowego Płockiego in 1938 and viewable on the Płock Digital Library's website. The legible image presented here was provided as a special exception, from a better copy of the map, by the Biblioteka im. Zielińskich Towarzystwa Naukowego Płockiego.

If this map is helpful to your research, perhaps it would be appropriate to make a small donation to the Towarzystwa Naukowego Płockiego, a Polish nonprofit, to aid in their preservation and dissemination of Płock historical sources (details about how they spend donated funds).
