We have published more than 2,400 maps in our series of Old Ordnance Survey Map reprints; this includes more than a hundred in Scotland, with a growing range of maps around Glasgow. The maps are highly detailed. They are taken from the OS 1:2,500 (or 25 inch) maps and reduced to about 15 inches to the mile. Each covers an area of a mile and a half by a mile. They show streets with individual houses, tram tracks, railway tracks and even signals, factories, wharves and such details as fountains and water troughs. They will provide hours of fascination for historians and genealogists. The maps are neatly folded and each includes a specially written introduction to the area. Maps can be purchased on our On-line Mapshop where further information about titles is given. Or visit The Index Page for a full list to the series and details of Prices.
Here are the details of maps for Bishopbriggs:
This detailed map covers the village of Bishopbriggs, just NE of Glasgow; a very small portion of the "County of the City of Glasgow" creeps onto the southern portion of the map. The NBR Edinburgh-Glasgow line runs through the map and features include the station, Crowhill, numerous disused quarries, Brackenbrae, tramway along Kirkintilloch Road, Huntershill House, Springburn Park goods station (at extreme bottom of map). Set away from the village are St Mary's Industrial School for boys and Kenmure House. On the reverse we include 1893 and 1910 directories for Bishopbriggs.
