We have published more than 2,500 maps in our series of Old Ordnance Survey Map reprints, and the series includes a very good group for Birmingham and the West Midlands. 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. 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. For other information and Prices, see Index Page.
