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 Description from publisher Most maps are taken from the OS 1:2500 (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. These show the areas in considerable detail, including individual houses. For a few areas of central London some of the very early Five-foot plans have been printed. Originally published at a scale of 1:1056 or 5 feet to the mile, they are reduced in scale to 1:1760 or a Yard to the Mile (or 1:1836 or about 34 inches to the mile in the case of this map). The maps, though covering quite a small area, are quite wonderfully detailed, showing such features as lamp-posts, the layouts of back yards, and even the interior of certain buildings such as churches and theatres.
