recent arrival
A rare and unusual map printed as a promotional advertisement for a local business. The map of Clifton actually covers a much larger area of Bristol than is now regarded as just Clifton, carefully printed for Lewis and Sons - Builders, Decorators, Paper- Hangers, Estate and House Agents - of Carlton Place, near the Mall, Clifton, as detailed around the plan's border. The famous Clifton Suspension Bridge, which took 33 years to build and was designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel at the the young age of 24, is marked as "Proposed Suspension Bridge." The map also shows the Zoological Gardens at top centre, and the Floating Harbour at the bottom centre. It is also notable for pre-dating some of the major roads currently in existence - Alma Road, Pembroke Road, Queens Road, Whiteladies Road and it also indicates fields and paths beyond the developed areas. A fascinating piece of commercial cartographic ephemera.
