    The maps cover the southern fringe of Edgbaston and much of Bournbrook and Selly Park, including the University area. Coverage stretches from Metchley Park eastward to Sir John's Road, and from Priory Road southward to Dartmouth Road.

    Features include the Midland Railway (Selly Oak station is partially shown at the bottom margin), Worcester & Birmingham Canal, Sellyn Park, Bristol Road with tramway, Pebble Mill Farm, Edgbaston Pool, part of Edgbaston Park, Park House, cycle works, metal works, Selly Hill, Bourn Brook, Gun Barrels Inn, Rockingham House, small section of Dudley Canal, Selly Wick House etc. On the reverse we include extracts from early directories, together with an introduction to the history of the area.

    The 1902-11 map is taken from the 'Inland Revenue Special Edition', basically a survey of 1902 with partial revision to 1911.

    The map links up with sheets 13.12 Edgbaston to the north, 13.15 Harborne South to the west, 14.13 Moseley to the east, and Worcestershire sheet 10.04 Selly Oak to the south.
