Series: Old Ordnance Survey Maps
Format: Folded Map 15 inches to 1 mile
There are more than 2,400 maps in this 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.
This very detailed map is centred on Glasgow Green but also includes parts of the Gorbals, Hutcheson Town and Bridgeton. Gorbals Cross is in the top left corner and coverage stretches from here eastward to Baltic Street and Bridgeton station, and southward to Polmadie House and Arthur Street. The River Clyde winds through the map. Features include the Southern Necropolis, Hutcheson Square, Gorbals Ropeworks, Gushetfaulds Goods Yard, Springfield Print Works, Bridgeton Cross, Rutherglen Bridge Factory, Newhall Factory, gasworks, Barrowfield Park football ground, Dalmarnock Factory, Bridgeton and Bridgeton Cross stations, Brookside Factory, tramways, Govan Iron Works. The reverse includes street directory extracts for Canning Street, M'Neil Street, Rutherglen Road, Wellington Street South, Greenhead Street.
The map links up with Sheets 6.11 Glasgow High Street to the north, 6.14 Pollokshields to the west, 6.16 Parkhead to the east and 10.03 Rutherglen West to the south.
