The Hahn-Mazurkiewicz theorem states that a space $X$ is a Peano Space if and only if $X$ is compact, connected and locally connected. If anybody knows a book with a proof, please let me know. Thanks.

P.S. (added by t.b.) A Peano space is a topological space which is the continuous image of the unit interval.
