Handmade to order
The 'eye' of this birds eye view of Sydney is somewhere above Port Jackson/Sydney Harbour bay, looking in a southerly direction towards the oldest and most built up parts of the city. Sydney Cove, Darling Habour, Woolloomooloo Bay and Blackwattle Bay can all be seen.
The giant Botanical Gardens and Government House dominate the foreground - and in the middle of the map, the giant City Railway (Central) train station is hard to miss.
The map's left edge is the neighbourhood of Darlinghurst, and the right side roughly equates to Wentworth Park and Ultimo. The top edge of the map shows Redfern park.
Tramlines, wharves, railway lines, named and unnamed roads are all shown - and, in a nice touch, some numbers from the 1901 census are also shown along the bottom edge. For example, there were 94,041 dwellings - and a population of 487,900.
Take a closer look at the listing images and see if you can spot your hometown or favourite holiday location! Contact me if you want to find out if a certain place is on the map or not.
This map looks great at all sizes: 12x18 inches (30x45cm), 16x20 inches (40x50cm), 18x24 inches (45x60cm) and 24x36 inches (61x90cm) but it looks even better when printed large. I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 160 inches (400cm, 13ft) tall. Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.
The model in the listing images is holding the 24x36 inch (61x90cm) version of this map.
This map would make a great birthday or Christmas gift for someone from Sydney or perhaps someone who has holidayed or lived in Sydney for a period of time.
You can order the map itself, or you can order a framed version. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that really makes your map pop out when on the wall. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame, or if you'd like to frame one of the larger maps. 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.
