COVENTRY 1887 - WARWICKSHIRE SHEET 21.12a
These detailed maps normally cover an area of about one and a half miles by one mile. Each map includes an introduction and many include extracts of directories, local transport timetables and additional maps.
We have published two versions of the main Coventry map, showing how the area changed across the years. The 1887 version is in colour, taken from the beautiful 1st Edition OS handcoloured map. The maps cover the centre of the city (much of which, of course, was destroyed in the war). Coverage extends from Queen Victoria Road eastwards to Gosford Green and Stoke Knob, and from the station (bottom left corner) northward to Drapers Field and Sackville Street. The many features include St Michael's church, Cattle Market, Maudslay Motor Works, Velox Motor Works, Kitson Works, Cheylesmore Works, Meteor motor cycle works, Triumph cycle works, Challenge Cycle Works, Singer cycle works, Premier cycle works, Coronet motor works, Sparkbrook cycle works, Dunlop works, and many more factories for cycles, motors or related trades. Also the workhouse, football ground, Pool Meadow etc. Street directory entries for Broadgate, Butcher Row, Cross Cheaping, Greyfriars Lane, High Street are also included.
It will be posted in a board backed envelope to ensure it reaches you in perfect condition.
WE HAVE AN EXTENSIVE CATALOGUE OF CD'S OF OLD DIRECTORIES SUCH AS KELLYS, PIGOTS & WHITES THAT ARE A VALUABLE RESEARCH RESOURCE OF USE TO LOCAL HISTORIANS & GENEALOGISTS. PLEASE VISIT OUR EBAY SHOP TO SEE OUR CURRENT LISTINGS.
NB: We are unable to do searches of maps. We stock almost 3000 maps covering the UK and unfortunately do not have the "local" knowledge of the area concerned and trying to find specific streets etc is a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack unless you know where to look. All our maps have descriptions of the area shown so we suggest a bit of research should be able to narrow it down.
