Especially for those who have obtained a copy of the recent facsimile copy of George Bradshaw's tourist's guide book, this pictorial treasure trove of visual historic mapping will enable armchair time travel at its very best, transporting you back to Victorian Britain. You can read the many railway journey guides so powerfully described in the guide whilst using this atlas to follow the route and all of the stations along the way. Core to Bradshaw's Railway Atlas of Great Britain and Ireland is the very last detailed railway map produced by George Bradshaw, originally published in 1852 and recently re-mastered and art worked. Published one year before the passing of George Bradshaw, his railway Map of Great Britain and Ireland is a visual record of when train travel was at its height - when railways were really golden - and his guides burst with pride about them. This atlas is a culmination of over two years work, bursting with Victorian imagery of vignette views and vistas from around Bygone Britain. Bradshaw's mapping of the railways across England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland and the Channel area of France is magnificently supplemented with no less than twenty two detailed British Town Plans. These exquisite maps were originally published in 1851 by John Tallis, enabling the time traveller to stop off at main line stations and explore the labyrinths of Victorian town Streets and public places. In addition the atlas presents a further eight "Environs" maps by George Bradshaw; Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dublin, followed by his railway map of London covering a full page spread. The atlas concludes with a full index of stations referenced to the page they appear in the atlas, many also cross referenced to the page they are referred to in the recently re-published facsimile by the Middleton Press - Bradshaw's tourist guide.
