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 good 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 Gourock:
This detailed map covers the town of Gourock, jutting out on the Forth of Clyde, and the terminus of the Caledonian Railway's Gourock Branch. Most of the town is covered (although the nature of the sheetlines do give rather a lot of sea on this map!) Features include the station, railway approaches and turntable, Barr Hill, Craigsmuschet Quarry, Kempock Point, churches, tramways, Tower Hill, Kempock Stone, Ironotter Point, Cardwell Bay, Public Park, and the town centre with houses neatly delineated. On the reverse we include a selection of trade directory entries.
