Scottish Heritage Cards - Glasgow & Surrounding
I have enjoyed absorbing myself in maps for as long as I can remember: examining the contours of Scottish mountains, following the river flow as it snakes through the landscape and discovering historic features – natural and man-made enticing me to investigate further from finger-tip to walking boots. This interest has taken a step towards vintage maps featuring orphanages, webs of bustling railway lines and villages that were once so small in comparison to their grand expansion by 2020.
This collection of card's map cuttings comes from a, intriguing 1957 Ordnance Survey One-Inch map, Seventh Series (sheet 60) of Glasgow. There is history on every sample from orphanages, hospitals and long gone railway tracks.
