Early Maps of Edinburgh

Many early maps of Edinburgh have been drawn and have survived.

In contrast, some other parts of Britain remained with very little detail mapped until the Ordnance Survey 'one inch' series of maps was completed in 1870 for England & Wales and 1887 for Scotland.  Colour was added to the 'one inch' maps in 1897.
