Quote from a well respected London Bookshop "Fascinating series of reproductions of old Ordnance Survey plans in the Alan Godfrey Editions, ideal for anyone interested in the history of their neighbourhood or family. Selected towns in Great Britain and Ireland are covered by maps showing the extent of urban development in the last decades of the 19th…" This is a brand new black & white folded map highly detailed taken from the OS 1:2,500 (or 25 inch) maps and reduced to about 15 inches to the mile. Each covers an area of a mile and a half by a mile. They show streets with individual houses, churches, schools, tram tracks, railway tracks and even signals, factories, wharves and such details as fountains and water troughs. This map is a must for the historian, genealogist and anyone interested in local history of Peebles, Scotland, between the 1901 and 1911 census period. It shows the semi rural area at that time. Description from Publisher:Peebles was a prosperous town in the 19th century, with railway companies jostling for custom; their lines seem to surround the town. It was also well placed for the mills, with the Tweed running through this map, joined by the Cuddy. The historic town was already enlarged to accomodate housing, industry and a large market, while just outside the town, but on the map, was the Peebles Hydropathic, the so-called "German Bath in Scotland", which was burnt down and rebuilt at about the time of this map. This map features the Fever Hospital, Combination Poorhouse, Rosetta Road, March Street Mills, St Joseph R C Church, School, Cemetery, St Andrews Church, Tower, Tweedside Mills, Station, Tweed Bridge, Damdale Mills, Damcroft Mills, Cross Church (ruin) Site of Monastery,, Old Station Bridge, Larch Plantation,, Innerleithen Road, Kerfield, Kingsmeadows, High School, Victoria Park, St Andrews Church (ruin) Episcopal Church.Additional information from seller:Named properties: Southpark, Springwood, Kingsmuir, Kingsmuir Hall, Kingswood, Kerfield Cottage, The Neuk, Lodge, Lodge, Soonhope, Venlaw House, Kirklands, Whyte Knowe, UFC Manse, Hay Lodge, Lee Lodge, West UFC Manse.All our items are despatched by Royal Mail with either Certificate of Posting stamped by the Post Office with the date of despatch or for more expensive purchases with Signed for Delivery.
