Seller: Top-Rated Seller sggenealogy (15.981) 100%, Location: Stamford, Ships to: US, EuropeanUnion, CA, AU, Item: 352786075447 Southend Village 1914 - London Sheet 170 This folded paper map which measures approximately 24" x 18" when unfolded is a modern reproduction by Alan Godfrey produced from the antique original 1/2500 plan and reprinted at 14 inches to the mile. It shows in great detail houses, railway tracks, churches, mills, signposts, cranes, pathways, etc and includes historical notes of the area. The Ordnance Survey did not include this area in their London Series until this edition and many would still regard it as part of Kent. The map covers the village of Southend, south of Catford, and even in 1914 it is largely rural. However at the north of the map building is taking place along Bellingham Road, while the tramway extends down to Southend, where new roads have been laid out. There is a stretch of railway down the western side of the map, with Bellingham and Beckenham Hill stations. There are several sports grounds, including Foxgrove Golf Course, and beyond that countryside. A slightly grey map (the fault of the original, not us) but fascinating for the way the area has changed. The author, John Coulter, comments that "It would be difficult to find a sheet of the 1914 Ordnance Survey, not purely rural, which shows so few buildings that are still standing. This is a sheet to enjoy in the home, perhaps, rather than as a tool for exploration". Our map also includes directories for Bellingham Road, Bromley Road and Southend. It will be posted in a board backed envelope to ensure it reaches you in perfect condition.

NB: We are unable to do searches of maps. We stock almost 3000 maps covering the UK and unfortunately do not have the "local" knowledge of the area concerned and trying to find specific streets etc is a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack unless you know where to look. All our maps have descriptions of the area shown so we suggest a bit of research should be able to narrow it down.
