Some show the exact trajectory of each of the numbered poles to be installed. Also, there are fine details of farms, buildings, smithies, public houses, wells etc clearly named on most of the maps.

The first sample of how we will be mounting and putting them out for sale is seen in the two images above.

As expected they have signs that betray their age.
