4.0 out of 5 stars You'll need a magnifying glass... 6 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase
This is a great resource - all the old streets are there (many of them long gone) - but the scale is tiny (or do I mean huge?) - anyway, what I mean is, it's very cramped and tiny so hard to read without a magnifying glass or very young eyes! Hence four stars rather than five.

I'd happily pay twice as much for the same map printed twice as large.

If you've found ancestors living in this area of London then this map will go along way to helping you understand the lifes of those ancestors. I have found them invaluable as many of these old London streets no longer exist. Also old os maps help you see who was living where in your family. Where you family neighbours with other members of your family? How far away from each other did they live? Old OS have really made my tree come alive. I can't recommend them enough.

4.0 out of 5 stars Old Whitechapel, Spitalfields Map 4 Sep 2013

I like the map and haven't seen one as complete as this one is yet. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because I need a magnifying glass to browse through it, the writing and print being pretty small.

OK, the print is really really tiny so a magnifier is beneficial. That aside,
It pulls together all the street names I've been reading about and gives me an easy
view of how they relate to each other. You might want to know that "Hanbury Street"
was named "Browns lane" in 1873. (I searched for an hour before finding that out.)
I took a chance in buying this as I didn't know what to expect. It's the map, not the booklet format. I'm delighted to see it has all the units and buildings outlined -many are labeled and on the back there is a listing of many business in operation at that time for many of the sections. A very worth-while investment.
I could have saved myself so much time trying to find 19th century streets maps on line, if I had purchased this sooner.
