This late 1960s facsimile copy of Geographers'' Plan of Manchester and Salford offers a fascinating snapshot of the city ahead of major road infrastructure changes: while sections of the M62 and M63 are shown, the M60 Manchester Ring Road they will become part of has yet to be built. The M602 penetrating into the heart of Salford is also absent and the Mancunian Way is not yet a motorway.

Discover districts before expansion; detail ultimately lost to future development; bus routes and other interesting information at an approximate scale of 3.4 inches to 1 mile.

Historic features include the Belle Vue Zoological Gardens and speedway; Trafford Park and Manchester Docks, both before regeneration, and town centres prior to traffic improvement schemes. Hanky Park, Pendleton, has been cleared for redevelopment and, in Hulme, new estates have been marked out, including a'mysterious'' link-road planned but never built. Sportcity, with its focus on sporting venues, will eventually replace the residential roads in north Beswick as will the Arndale Shopping Centre in the city centre. Close inspection reveals a multitude of interesting detail: Dye Manufactory; Monsall Isolation Hospital; Gorton Foundry and the Metropolitan Vickers Electric Engineering Works for example. Detail in other areas will disappear as Manchester Airport''s new terminals and the Trafford Centre are built.

The map covers an area from Prestwich in the north to Wythenshawe in the south and Eccles in the west to Stockport in the east.

Cancellations - non personalised/bespoke items

The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations) provide consumers with the right to a 'cooling-off' period to allow you to change your mind. Under these regulations, you have the right to cancel your order, without explanation, within 14 days of delivery (starting the day after you receive the goods) and to return the goods for a refund within a further 14 days (28 days in total). The Distance Selling Regulations do not apply to businesses nor to individuals who are trading or acting as a trader (buying goods to re-sell for profit) because no-one is the 'Consumer'. This means there is no 'cooling-off' period and the order cannot be cancelled once processed.

Where an order is placed for an item which is to be personalised or is bespoke, cancellation is not possible once production has started and these are expressly excluded from The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations).
