This 1934 Shipley map is a composite produced from 2 separate maps of the 201 Yorkshire County series maps from 1934.

This work has been lovingly crafted by hard work and with a little Photoshop magic!! It covers a wide area but maintains a high level of detail. This map shows Shipley a thriving and hardworking West Riding town and its associated industries.
The image shown here of the 1934 Shipley is a low resolution copy with a watermark. The purchase edition is a high quality image and of course carries no watermark! The snippets of the ??? give a true indication of the quality and resolution of this work.
This map is printed on premium quality 180gsm heavyweight paper and uses the fine quality inks that do not fade or smudge. This work would form the centrepiece for any room and looks stunning mounted (as illustrated).
