New Map – Dublin City and Environs 1880

New map added to website,  Dublin City and Environs Map 1880 from Thom’s Directory.

Original is a large map – size : 72cm  x 82cm (~ 28″ x 32″)

The maps covers Dublin city and parts of south and north county Dublin , from Glasnevin in the north, Islandbridge and Crumlin in the west, to Terenure and Milltown to the south. In some rural areas townland names and borders are shown.

This is a new high resolution scan, made up from 8 separate A3 images merged, and implemented in Zoomify to allow very detailed zoom, see example below – in some city areas the zoom goes slightly beyond the map print resolution.

The map data is very large, so can take a few seconds to catch up when zooming and panning
