Map heaven!

This weekend, I’ve received some great old maps from a map dealer I’ve discovered online. I haven’t got time to do the full thing here yet, but I thought I’d preview an excerpt here from a 1951 1:25000 scale map of Brownhills. If you’re into maps, this is pure art. Click on the map for a larger version – I’m going to have some fun with these.

    great stuff, having only lived around here since 1999 its great to see how the area used to look will be showing it to my father in law who was around this area at the time am sure he will love it. Me and my wife have already planned a few cycle rides now to look at some of the old features marked on the map.

    thank and keep up the great work, hope there is more to come.
