Old Map of Newcastle upon Tyne and Gateshead by Thomas Oliver, 1830
Dispatches in 1-2 days
Handmade to order
Oliver was very active at the time and created many surveys and maps of the area.
A lovely engraving of The Castle adorns the top of the map - quite close to where today's St James' Park and Newcastle United play.
Many of Newcastle's old streets are visible, including Percy Street, Gallowgate, and Westgate. Over the river you can see Gateshead, which only consisted of a few streets back in 1830. Present day landmarks like Eldon Square are visible - but alas, 'THE NUNS' no longer exists today.
Interestingly there are a few 'projected streets' that were planned to be built. See if you can guess what streets they eventually became! (And some of them were never built.)
The model in the listing images is holding the 16x20 inch (40x50cm) version of this map.
This would make a wonderful birthday or Christmas gift for someone from Newcastle or who has the Tyne in their heart.
You can order the map itself, or you can order a framed version. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that really makes our maps pop out when on a wall. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame. We use super-clear acrylic (perspex/acrylite) in our frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport.
If you are not happy with your unique map for any reason, contact me for a no-quibble refund.
I am very confident you will like your old map. I have been doing this since 1984 and I'm a 5-star Etsy seller with 1000s of sales and reviews.
This is the cheapest place to buy my maps online.
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.
