This unusual, old map is what Birmingham looked like in 1730 - but it was actually created in 1923 by Bernard Sleigh using official records.
This map looks great at all sizes: 12x18 inches (31x46cm), 18x24 inches (45.5x61cm) and 24x36 inches (61x91.5cm), but it looks even better when printed large.
I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 70 inches wide (175cm). Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.
The model in the listing images is holding the 18x12 inch (45x30cm) version of this map.
There's a lovely amount of detail here. You might even be able to find the street that you live on today!
This would make a wonderful birthday, Christmas, work leaving, or housewarming gift for someone who has a close connection to or is from Birmingham!
This map is available as a giclée print on acid free archival matte paper, or you can buy it framed. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that suits most aesthetics. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame colour or material. My frames are glazed with super-clear museum-grade acrylic (perspex/acrylite), which is significantly less reflective than glass, safer, and will always arrive in perfect condition.

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.
