    Default Liverpool in Maps

    [THREAD EDITED TO LEAVE LINKS ONLY DUE TO FILES SIZES BEING TOO LARGE - CLICK ON THE LINKS TO VIEW] - Kev

    Its time for Liverpool to get the “mad map man” treatment. I collect maps of allsorts, but have a particular interest in the South Lancs area. The collection grows all the time, but space is running out! My scanning skills aren’t too good, so bear with me. The digital data images are far clearer.

    So, take a journey through time !

    1st series One Inch

    Not an original, a facsimilie of the area from 1849 with railways inserted to 1890

    Likewise, a reprint from 1903

    1889

    These are excerpts from the first edition County Series maps of Lancashire- I have 2 disks of scans which cover the whole of Lancashire south of Preston. I am lucky in having access to an A0 printer at work, so I can print out complete sheets. Originals of this series tend to be very mucky and well used- I had the option of having the whole set of Hampshire once, but settled for scanning them. I also have most of west Cheshire.They are a fascinating record of the area in the late Victorian age. Any requests for specific areas to be shown, ill try to oblige.

    One of favourites is this 1913 One Inch map, which covers an area from Southport to Chester and across to Wigan. Possibly Liverpool in its prime. Note the coastal batteries at Seaforth and Perch Rock.

    1947 One Inch

    I like the style of this series, we begin to see the corporation estates being built.

    This is from the 1956 1:10,000 mapping of Liverpool

    These are dated 1964, but revision wasn’t too frequent then, so the actual survey may have been carried out 10 years earlier.

    This map makes Liverpool look terrible, look at all the slum clearance areas!

    I love looking at old maps,I have a few my self from the Scouse press packets,I also have a few OS maps from Alan Godfrey collection

    just recently I have started collecting old A-Z's I now have about 7 Liverpool ones

    I do have a request though . do you have any maps that show Barlow Square (off Westminister Rd) Kirkdale? none of my maps show it
    my grandfather lived there in 1901 & I live so close to it now I could even be living on the site of it

    Ive just spent a while looking for Barlow Square, but maybe it was quite small and so not named on the map. There are a few courts off Barlow Street- perhaps it was one of them. there is a square off walton road, near a mill, again unlabelled.

    hi Bazzacat

    thank you
    I think the Square off Walton Rd is Springfield Sq
    in the indexes of my maps it says Barlow Sq off Barlow Street but it doesn't show it on any maps it must be too small to show,I live in the next street to Barlow St & would really love to know exactly were Barlow Square was
    looking closely at the map I think there are two squares close to Bradewell St so it could be one of them

    thanks again
    Mandy
