All the images
above are taken from the folding maps in Post Office Directories.
These maps were engraved by C Thomson (1830), W
H Lizars (1840,1848), John Bartholemew (1865).
I have copied the same area of land each of these
maps but some of the images are squarer than others.
- The scales on the W H Lizars maps show this
area to be approx. 1.25 miles x 0.75 miles.
- The scale on the John Bartholemew map shows
this area to be approx.1.50 miles x 0.75 miles.
- The C Thomson map has no scale, but the
proportions are similar to the John Bartholemew map.
- The modern Ordnance Survey map shows this
area to be approx.1.50 miles x 0.75 miles.
