Life of a toaster

By jivetoaster


I collect antique maps of Glasgow. Always been fascinated by maps since I was a kid, and I keep an eye out on eBay and in antique shops for unusual examples. The large one at the left here is my oldest, dating from around 1840 (the proper Ordnance Survey of Glasgow was done in 1986, from which point onwards the maps all look pretty much the same).
Nothing of any great value, but some curiosities. A railway lines map showing all the different companies, around 1900, and a map of the battlesite of the Battle of Langside, circa 1860, are my favourites.
