Old Birmingham Map Recommendations?

Sun Sep 07, 2014 3:24 pm

Hi, I was wondering if anyone knew of where I could get hold of a decent old street maps of Birmingham, probably mid to late 1800''s would be the most beneficial? I was hoping to get hold of something that I could lay out on a table and plot where all my different ancestors lived within the city.

Thanks, Paul

I have a couple of streetmaps from that era that I have scanned but I'm away in Scotland at the moment. I'm not sure (a) I have them on the memory stick I have with me and (b) that the WiFi at the cottage will cope with the upload. I'll check...

They were in a trunk of documents and photos that belonged to my husband's grandfather.

I think this site was mentioned in a copy of the magazine a few months back-

I've got it open at London but if you look on the left hand side of the page you can put in your own search criteria. I've found it really useful in my hunts.
