A Plan Of The City Of Cardiff in Glamorganshire : A. E. Taylor

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A. E. Taylor's series of decorative road maps and town plans first appeared in 1932 as promotional posters for Pratt's Motor Oil Company and were re-issued after their takeover by Esso at slightly reduced scale in 1936 in "Pictorial Britain and Ireland ...." Each map is covered with vignettes and small panels of text illustrating towns and landmarks along the roads. The town plans were simplified introductions to each city with the major roads, buildings and landmarks identified and illustrated in delicate vignettes. Here is a very interesting and decorative map of Cardiff with a little inset map of the roads connecting Cardiff to surrounding towns such as Llandovery and Brecon.
