These maps are 6″ to the mile and are now starting to emerge for sale. They are mounted with a lined border, backed with acid free board and ready for framing. Most of them will be 603 x 492 mm dimension. They are all showing appropriate signs of age and most have the markings of the telegraph/telephone surveyor. Splendid detail of many things long gone. They give a glimpse of West Wales before the conifer planting began, when wells, smithies, fords, and even Sunday schools were important. Every farm of the time is shown. They will all be priced at £40 each plus a tracked courier charge of £7.40 if posted.

These valuable maps are very detailed, being 6″ to a mile scale. Very detailed they also have the jottings and added work markings of the surveyor/engineer responsible for installing the telegraph/telephone network.
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.
It is likely they will retail for £40 each plus a tracked courier charge of £7.40
If you are interested in any particular location or area please send precise details and we will look through the collection. This first one is obviously of Tregaron.
