This early 1960s facsimile copy of Geographers' Plan of Birmingham offers a fascinating snapshot of the city ahead of major road infrastructure changes: while proposed lines for the M6 and M5 are marked, there is no indication of ‘Spaghetti Junction’ or the Aston Expressway. Other relief roads and by-passes, like the A41 through West Bromwich and the A38 east of (Royal) Sutton Coldfield, are conspicuous by their absence.


Discover districts before expansion; detail ultimately lost to future development; bus routes and other interesting information at a scale of 3 inches to 1 mile.


Historic features include the Birmingham Race Course and Castle Bromwich Aerodrome, both redeveloped into housing estates; Sutton Park Crystal Palace and Harborne Reservoir, factories and motor industry works. Many town centres are also of interest, showing roads prior to traffic improvement schemes. Areas across the map reveal detail before residential expansion, including (Royal) Sutton Coldfield (Thimble End, Falcon Lodge and Walmley Ash), Woodgate and Bartley Green, Kings Norton, Hawkesley, Dickens Heath and Shirley. Close inspection reveals a multitude of interesting detail: Metal Window Works; Valor Stove Co.; Monyhull Hall Colony; Infectious Diseases Hospital, City Fever Hospital and the Tractors Branch of the Morris Motor Works for example.


The map covers an area from central Walsall in the north to Hollywood in the south and Oldbury in the west to Castle Bromwich in the east.
