England & Wales 1800's
Using data from a survey of England & Wales between 1805 and 1874, these black & white maps were engraved by hand and show a largely rural landscape still reliant on horse and cart and drovers trails rather than roads.
...and now also available - Scotland 1800's
Released later than those of England & Wales, surveys of the high road and the low road were made between 1856 and 1887 and show the rapidly expanding urban centers of Glasgow and Edinburgh contrasting with the still wild highlands.
England & Wales 1900s
The Late Victorian age. Taken from surveys conducted between 1896 and 1904 this title marks the growth of the railway, with over 18,000 miles of track covering England & Wales.
England & Wales 1920s
The third in the series, the 1920s uses data from 1919 to 1926 and clearly shows the impact on the landscape of the age of the motor car. Roads cover the once rural landscape linking ever larger urban areas and colour is used for the first time to grade the suitability of roads for vehicles.
England & Wales 1940s
Post-war urbanisation and changing land use is clear in the final title in the series. Using surveys made between 1945 and 1948, although the railway is at its peak, it is easy to see that the road has taken priority and the major cities of England & Wales are larger than ever before.
