Interesting reasons for Map ordering

16 Nov 2014
Interesting reasons for Map ordering Some interesting reasons for customer's ordering maps:

1. Researching the route of old 18th C postal routes across the Grampian area and so looking at Victorian Ordnance maps that show post offices and carriage stopping off points in the Moray/ Banff area

2. Customer looking to see if a recently acquired old cottage near Linlithgow was on some of the older maps. We found one on the old 1775 set and the property is still named as it was. map to be framed and put in the new (very old) home 

3. Atlas of Scotland Dundee 1912 original bought by a lady to be framed for the new home of a couple after their wedding

4. Historian investigating family links in the coastal villages of Ayr and found some detail in the original 1775 Ayr maps

5. Family history buff wanting proof that an asylum existed in Leith, Edinburgh when he though as it was where his relative had been! We found it on a copy of the John Laurie map series
