This map is loaded with lots of lovely detail. There's historical information, industrial information, points of interest, vignettes of different types of Eastern folk... zoom into the listing images and marvel at just how much detail is packed into the map.
Perhaps most importantly, each of the region's major towns and cities is represented by a sketch of their highstreet or a significant building, along with the coat of arms if they have one - and a little bit of interesting info.
In the bottom left corner are two giant coats of arms representing London - the County of London and the City of London.
Lovingly restored by The Unique Maps Co, I guarantee this is the finest version of this map that you'll find anywhere.
This map looks amazing at all sizes, from 12x16 inches (30x40cm) to 16x20 inches (40x50cm) and 18x24 (45x60cm). It looks truly beautiful at larger sizes like 24x30 inches (60x76cm) and beyond. I can print this map at sizes up to 5 meters (16.5ft) wide. Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options. Please note that the unframed 24x30 inch map has white strips either side that can be easily snipped off (or they may help you with framing). All other maps look just like the listing images.
If you're looking for a framed map that isn't in stock, please get in touch and we can discuss your needs. I use super-clear museum-grade acrylic (perspex/acrylite) in my frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport.
This world map would make a perfect gift for someone who loves to travel by train, is interested in the history of Britain's railways, or simply as a housewarming gift for someone in Yorkshire! Of course, it would also look great as wall art on your own walls!
Some of my old maps are now available on canvas. Smaller and larger sizes are available, but you must contact me to order.
Check my canvas maps collection to see which maps are currently available on canvas.
Canvas old maps are an interesting alternative to conventionally framed maps. Depending on your personal taste and room decor, canvas maps can "pop" a bit more than a framed map.
I print on responsibly sourced canvas with very high quality, fade-resistant inks. Then the canvas is stretched over a hand-glued solid wood frame - and yes, the wood is responsibly and renewably sourced.
The finished piece is 1.5 inches (3.8cm) deep and comes ready to hang.
Please note that because of the texture of canvas, some of the finer details on some maps will be harder to read than a map printed on paper.
At 36x24 inches (90x60cm) everything should be legible. But if you want to check before you order, please contact me.
If you are not happy with your unique map for any reason, contact me for a no-quibble refund.
I am very confident you will like your old map. I have been doing this since 1984 and I'm a 5-star Etsy seller with 1000s of sales and reviews.
This is the cheapest place to buy my maps online.
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.
