Edinburgh & Leith

1840

BOTTOM OF MAP:  Edinburgh

TOP RIGHT CORNER:  Leith

At first glance, comparing this map with the 1835 map, it appears that there has been considerable development.

But on closer inspection it can be seen that the difference is mainly in the style of the mapping, rather than changes in the area being mapped.  The 1840 map shows more detail.
