SHREWSBURY

by Robert Kearsley Dawson

Published 1832

An original 19th century antique street plan of Shrewsbury, Shropshire, England.

Drawn up by Lieutenant R.K. Dawson of the Royal Engineers and published by the Boundaries Commission in 1832.

The whole country was surveyed for the commission to support the 1832 reform bill - a major shake-up of the nation's parliamentary representation.

The upper map is on a scale of one inch to a mile and the lower map is on a scale of 4 inches to the mile affording great detail including individual buildings.

It's interesting to compare the 19th century map with the much expanded Shrewsbury of the present day.

The map is accompanied with a fascinating 5 page report on housing, population etc.

Enhanced with original hand colouring and a colour key to the various boundaries and wards.

Fine condition other than minor age related blemishes, free of repairs or restoration, not folded, blank verso.

Approx. 13.5" x 8" (340mm x 205mm) overall (as depicted).

A GENUINE ORIGINAL ANTIQUE MAP GUARANTEED OVER 180 YEARS OLD FROM LINDISFARNE PRINTS
