    We have published four versions of this map, showing how the area changed across the years. They cover the eastern area of Birmingham around Sparkhill and Greet. Coverage stretches from Stoney Lane eastward to Knights Lane, and from Gough Road southward to Woodlands Road. The Warwick Road and Stratford Road run through the map, which also includes Showell Green.

    Features include Premier Works, tramways, Burbury Brick Works, fireworks factories, River Cole, Greet Brick Works, Showell Green House, St John's church, streets of terraced housing around Sparkhill, Greet Bridge, Tyseley Brick Works, Greetmill Hill Farm, schools etc.

    Please note: The 1938 version does not include railway information as this and some other revision material had been lost, presumably due to bomb damage in the war.

    The map links up with sheets 14.10 Small Heath to the north, 14.13 Moseley to the west, 14.15 Acocks Green to the east and Worcestershire sheet 11.02 Hall Green to the south.
