Large Antique Map of the West Country - Bristol Channel Bath South Wales Cardiff

120.00

1920s/1930s Road Map of the Westcountry by Geographia Ltd.

 

Local Map depicting the Bristol Chanel, Bristol, Bath, Cardiff, South Wales and surrounding countryside.

 

 

Stunning map that has been one of the most challenging items I have had to photograph, it definitely looks better in the flesh.

 

A large linen backed map with rolls up and down with ebonised wooden tubes at each end.

 

Showing the old road network, well before the introduction of the motorways!

 

I'm guessing it would have originally been used in a school or business or possibly owned by a wealthy household planning out their journeys in their early motorcar.

 

An excellent interior design piece, would equally look as good in a bar, restaurant, office or in a domestic setting.

 

Looking into Geographia's Address at the time this dates to the 1920s/1930s period.

 

Measuring: 143cm high X 145cm wide.

 

The map is in good vintage condition, there is some wear as you would expect and a couple of little areas of damage but nothing that detracts from the overall look of the piece. Please see photos.
