At the beginning of the nineteenth century, Birmingham had a population of around 74,000 by the end of the Victorian era, this number had swelled almost tenfold. As its population grew, the urban landscape was transformed and Birmingham came to be known as the 'city of a thousand trades'. This detailed street map of 1828 depicts one of England's foremost nineteenth-century towns on the eve of an industrial boom that was to change it forever, and offers a glimpse of aspects of it now lost in urban development. This attractive portrayal of a modern city in its infancy is an invaluable tool for local historians and genealogists.
