There have no doubt been many discussions around the table during a family Christmas about how things have changed "since I was a lad" etc!
Now you can buy a map which shows in detail how your local area, or perhaps any location with a special meaning has changed in over 100 years.
You provide the required postcode in the ordering process which will become the centre point of two maps. Then, using the authoritative Ordnance Survey mapping, two maps will be created by the publisher, these maps will show the same area you have chosen, approximately 11.8 miles diameter from the centre, with one showing the location as it was in around 1895-1904 and the other will use the current Ordnance Survey Landranger® mapping.
This is a customised product - note delivery times.
Being able to see both maps of the same area side by side will either sort out various opinions or perhaps start other discussions!
And of course, this comparison may even create an interest in the local or family history.
The map size is 54 x 84cm (approx 22 x 34 inches).
As a nice added touch to this gift, you can provide a personal message of up to 30 characters including spaces to be printed on the map.
The central postcode can be anywhere on the Great Britain mainland, in England, Wales or Scotland.
