Maps and Sketches of Georgian and Victorian Birmingham Featured February Print

Maps and Sketches of Georgian and Victorian Birmingham

ISBN - - Hardcover - A4 (297 mm x 210 mm)
This book presents a journey back through time to the streets of Georgian and early Victorian Birmingham. Core to this fascinating book are Thomas Underwood's extremely scarce street views and sketches of Birmingham's lost and bygone buildings. This publication includes all of the original sketches from both volumes of "The Buildings of Birmingham Past and Present", digitally re-mastered and art worked. The descriptive, poignant and captivating poems especially created for this publication by Ian Henery, poet laureate for Walsall, add a rich and sometimes nostalgic dimension. In addition there are rare maps such as the recently acquired Survey of the Birmingham Canal Navigations 1864 and period town plans that feature many of the buildings captured in sketch, and a collection of elegant and fascinating manufacturing trade plates, ensuring that the original request - all those years ago, is fulfilled for our future

From Canals to Early Steam Railways - A History In Maps Featured February Print

From Canals to Early Steam Railways - A History In Maps

ISBN - - Hardcover - A4 (297 mm x 210 mm)
By the time George Bradshaw published his first iconic railway map in May 1839, Britain's major industrial towns of Birmingham, Liverpool and Manchester were already connected to London. Such was the pace of railway building during the period, with new railway companies emerging across the country, that by the time many maps were published they were already outdated. In deciding to chronicle these early, steam powered railways to display the sheer pace of change we have created seven maps clearly showing each that was opened, along with summary narratives, for the years 1836, 1839, 1842, 1845, 1846, 1847 and 1848. The first section of the atlas presents a detailed look at the lay of the land at the time of the golden age of canals that had begun in the 1770's. The detailed map published in 1809 shows the established canal network, along with some of the early horse drawn Iron Railways, or "wagonways" as they were known. The building of such wagonways, like that at Ashby-de-la-Zouch connected to the Ashby Canal, was a major engineering achievement and became a model for future railways - with the harnessing of steam, most of the towns in the country wanted a railway connection within 30 years. Following the atlas pages of 1809 we present no less than 25 colour town plans prior to the arrival of the railways and the dramatic changes that ensued. They therefore offer a rare rural insight to the past. The atlas is lavishly illustrated with many thought provoking views and vistas from this bygone age that capture one of the most monumental periods of change in British history
