Collection of Four Historic Maps of Liverpool from 1785-1903 Sheet map, folded
Part of the Liverpool Historic Maps Collection series
This folded map (890mm 1000mm when unfolded) is an ideal souvenir for tourists to Liverpool and also a valuable reference resource for local and family history research.
The large map is titled "A plan of the Town and Township of Liverpool 1785 by Charles Eves.
It has been reproduced in full colour for the first time working from the very rare antique original.
What makes this plan unique is the names of all of the land and property holders written across the parcels of land, yet to be built upon that surround the main town of Liverpool.
The township of Everton is a distant village, well detached from Liverpool by open fields.
The other three maps feature Cole and Ropers Plan of Liverpool from 1805, a Bird's Eye View of Liverpool from 1866 and a more detailed Plan of Liverpool by Bartholomew showing the extensive Docklands in 1903.
All the maps have been meticulously re-produced from antique originals and printed on 90 gsm "Progeo" paper which was specially developed as a map paper.
It has high opacity to help reduce show through and a cross grain giving it greater durability to as the map is being folded.
