  • Fire Ins. Maps of Whitechapel - British Library.

    Back in January I wrote to the British Library about the fact users of the Fire Insurance Maps were no longer able to use the Adobe viewer to enlarge their maps.
    They did reply with an acknowledgement of that problem, but had no solution to offer.

    Yesterday, as a measure towards solving that problem, they forwarded to me this link...

    I have not tried it yet....

      I tried it later that night, no joy.
      The link doesn't appear to be for the Whitechapel maps.

      Have you just tried it now?

        There is a link on that page to the Goad maps, Jon;

        https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/C...om_the_British _Library

        From there you can scroll through the various towns to find the relevant London sheets. If they're ok quality I'll have a trawl through and pick out and post links for some relevant ones.

        Just found links to the London ones so you won't need to scroll through quite so many pages.

        ​​​​​​​Or if you don't mind downlaoding a free app, they are available on OldMaps at the Play store.

          You will eventually find something to your liking.

          Never believe anything until it has been officially denied.

            Appreciate those links Joshua.

            And thankyou Simon, right on the 300 series.
