Handmade to order
This old, full colour and wonderful map shows the railways and canals of the British Isles in 1872. It was engraved by G.H. Swanston and published by A. Fullarton & Co.
This is one of the nicest maps of railways in the UK, almost at the peak of the British rail system. The map shows all the railways of England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. And rather uniquely, it has inset maps showing the detailed railways of London, Manchester, Liverpool, Sheffield, York, Birmingham, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
This map looks great at all sizes: 12x16 inches (31x41cm), 18x24 inches (45.5x61cm), and 24x30 inches (61x76cm), but it looks even better when printed large
I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 56x70 inches (140x180cm). Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.
The model in the listing images is holding the 16x20 inch (40x50cm) version of this map.
Please note the unframed 24x30 inch map has white edges around the map. These edges can help you with framing, or if you don’t need them they are very easy to snip off with scissors. All other maps, including the framed maps, look exactly like the listing images.
Just about every town and city is visible in this antique map of the UK. Zoom in on some of the detailed images and see if you can spot your town!
This would make a wonderful birthday, Christmas, work leaving or housewarming gift for someone who has a keen interest in the history of the British Rail system.
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.
