This face shield can be used as a headband, bandana, balaclava, wristband or neck warmer. This is not a medical grade face mask, but it could still help prevent the spread of coronavirus/covid-19 if you wear it when you go outside.
Lovely engravings adorn the edges of the map, including the Town Hall, Kirkstall Abbey, Wellington Bridge, and New Gaol.
Many of the streets and buildings near the River Aire are the same as today, including the main Leeds railway station - though back in 1851 it was called Bradford station. Just north of the station, York Place and Park Place are still there today - though they look very different.
The A64 is here - but back in 1851 it was called York Road!
Notably, the massive Leeds General Infirmary isn't on this map - it moved to its current site in 1869.
Outside of Leeds city centre, many of the suburbs in 1851 were still fields and moorland. Holbeck Moor, Hunslet Moor, Woodhouse Moor, and of course Little London are all rendered beautifully on this old map.
You can also buy a beautiful printed version of this map, and we can frame it for you as well. See the listing here: https://uniquemaps.co.uk/products/rare-old-map-of-leeds-in-1851-by-john-rapkin

I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
