One-inch (1:63,360) map of England and Wales, sheet 144 Plymouth, 1914

24. In 1914 the Ordnance Survey published for official use copies of the 'Aldershot North' and 'Aldershot South' district sheets coloured with the delicate array of hachuring, hills shading and contouring in the style made famous for its appearance in 1913 on 'Killarney District'. Copies of these sheets are relatively well known. This 'Plymouth' sheet, also for official use, is on the sheet lines of sheet 144 of the forthcoming Popular Edition, and in the same colouring as the Aldershot sheets, but is previously not recorded.
