Here’s the full version of that map I promised yesterday, the 1947 one with the curious markings – I’ve scanned it full size at 600DPI and stitched out properly into one image, so fill your boots.
This is a very large image, so you may want to use the mosaic gallery at the foot of the post – just click on a tile to view it.
Ordnance Survey Sheet 43/00, 1947 covering Brownhills, Chasetown, North Aldridge, Pelsall and Stonnall. It cost £2 from a chance find in a Rugeley secondhand shop.
I’m very curious as to the markings – manly enclosures – and who made them. Damn sure I recognise the handwriting here.
Any ideas? Comment here, or mail me: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com.
