Liverpool (Pierhead) Prince’s & George’s Docks 1850-64


Taken from the five foot plans and reduced to a scale of a yard to the mile; these maps show a part of Liverpool in great detail and represents some of the Ordnance Survey's earliest large scale plans. Each map covers a small area; but the fine detail has to be seen to be believed - even the interiors of some public buildings (e.g. churches; theatres) are shown. Includes 2 maps; Sheets 23 & 28; covering Prince's and George's Docks. . Historical introduction by Kay Parrot
