Series: Old Ordnance Survey Maps
Format: Folded Map
These 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.
There are two versions of this map, showing how the area developed over the years. The 1877 version is in full colour. Coverage stretches from Grafton Street westward to the NSR main line, and from Granville Street southward to Argyle Street.
The many features include North Staffordshire main line with Etruria station, NSR Loop Line with Hanley station, part of NSR Grange Branch, Shelton Steel Works, Shelton Blast Furnaces, Etruria Potteries, Canal Tileries, Shelton Colliery, Fowlea Farm, Trent & Mersey Canal, Rowhurst Pits, Royal Victoria Works, tramways, Shelton Iron & Steel Works, Racecourse Pits, Brook Street Works, Grand Hotel, Tontine Square, Market Square, St John's church, Church Works, other potteries and earthenware manufactories, Town Hall, Holy Trinity church, and much more. Extracts from early directories are included on the reverse.
The map links up with Staffordshire Sheets 12.09 Burslem to the north, 11.16 Wolstanton to the west, 12.14 Hanley East to the east and 18.01 Stoke & Shelton to the south.
