Official Maps

I've been looking for Edinburgh tram and bus maps.  Those in the table below are the ones that I have found to date.  I hope to add some of them to the EdinPhoto web site later - but not the recent ones for copyright reasons.

The maps have been found in:

-  my collection (PAS)

-  National Library of Scotland Collection (NLS).

Some of the information in the table below may be sufficient to enable a more accurate date for the map to be ascertained.

All the maps below, apart from the first one, are folded maps.
