An extremely intriguingly and historically significant map of Northern Ireland, captured by the Ordnance Survey in 1923. The map shows the population density of the North of Ireland, and their preference for either an Irish Free State or the Belfast Parliament.
The Irish Free State had just been created in southern Ireland a year earlier in 1922, and would eventually be replaced by the Constitution of Ireland in 1937 which created the modern republic of Ireland.
As you can see from the number of yellow squares, there were more people in favour of the Belfast Parliament (i.e. remaining part of the UK), and thus Ulster did not join the Irish Free State.
This map looks great at all sizes: 12x16 inches (30x40cm), 16x20 inches (40x50cm) and 18x24 inches (45x60cm), but it looks even better when printed large. I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 140 inches (360cm) wide. Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.
The model in the listing images is holding the 20x16 inch (50x40cm) version of this map.
Please note that the city of Londonderry is shown as 'Derry' on this map.
Take a look at the detailed images and try to spot your hometown! Feel free to message me if you want to confirm if a certain town or village is on this map.
This would make a wonderful birthday, housewarming or Christmas gift for someone from X or who has X 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 the map pop out when on a wall. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame. I use super-clear acrylic (perspex/acrylite) in my 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 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.
