If you or a friend are tracing their family history and would like to see what the area around an ancestor's house looked like in Victorian times, take a look at this Personalised Victorian Map jigsaw.
You could have great fun putting the map together from either 255 or 400 pieces. As it's based on a map, (admittedly 100 years ago!) the publishers don't provide a guide image - you have to use your own skill and judgement (or luck!) to complete the puzzle.
The publisher believes this makes it more fun! You start with a house-shaped piece as the centre of the map - you provide an address and (present-day) postcode during the ordering process. But please note that the address can only be in England and Wales - this map publisher doesn't have the Victorian mapping for Scotland.
If it's going to be a gift, you can hand-write a personal message on the supplied box.
The scale is 1:10,000
These jigsaws are made from 1.5 mm quality Millboard.
