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.
