Bradshaws Railway Atlas of Great Britain & Ireland Featured Print

Bradshaws Railway Atlas of Great Britain & Ireland

ISBN 9781844917914 Hardcover - A4 (297 mm x 210 mm)
The Railway Atlas of Great Britain 1852 has been created as a tribute to the work of George Bradshaw (1801-1853), and as a visual accompaniment to the recently re-published Bradshaws Guide. His legacy of exquisitely detailed historic railway maps lovingly reproduced in this atlas now enable todays reader to retrace journeys once travelled by our mid 19th century ancestors. These journeys have been enriched in this atlas with views and vistas from a time when train travel was at its height the golden age of the railway and his railway maps and guide books were bursting with pride about them. In addition to the railway map the atlas contains all of the John Tallis British town plans from 1851, showing the arrival of the railways into the major cities and towns. At the back of the book there is an extensive index to railway stations featured in the atlas that is cross referenced to the page in Bradshaws guide book where it is described, making it the perfect accompaniment to the popular railway guide itself

Old Map of Liverpool 1785 by Surveyed by Charles Eyes Featured Print

Old Map of Liverpool 1785 by Surveyed by Charles Eyes

This most impressive reproduction map has been completely art worked in full colour from the very rare antique original, large, black and white, detailed plan of Liverpool published by Charles Eyes. The map is a truly local publication as it was also engraved in Liverpool - by Thomas Condor. It has been painstakingly reproduced and shows the green hedgerows of lands not yet built upon, and for each shows the names of the respective landowners, which makes this work a treasure trove to those researching family history, genealogists and those keen on the history of Liverpool. All docks are named, roads and streets, important buildings as well as the occasional windmill. Some of these landownerAEs names were given to some of the streets that rapidly spread out into the rural aspects of the time, for example Bold Street has recently been cut, yet the plan still shows the adjacent land owned by oMr Boldo
