Becca and I have bought a couple of antique maps of places we have lived over the years, but we have never got around to getting them properly framed. Well we finally did, and they look awesome!
This is a 1764 hand coloured engraving of Leicestershire by Thomas Kitchen.
This is a 1806 hand coloured copper engraving of of the Environs of London by R. Phillips of New Bridge Street.
This is a c1880 ordnance survey map of Buckinghamshire by G. W. Bacon. Those sharp witted amongst you will know that we used to live in Milton Keynes, which wasn’t invented (in its current form) until 1967, but Milton Keynes village is just about visible if you know where to look.
We got them framed by out local map shop. Just need to get a nice one of Norfolk and Sri Lanka and we will be done.
