This made-to-order, truly unique gift collates an archive of Ordnance Survey map extracts based on one very special location: your home.
The My House History Portfolio contains a series of map extracts from individual OS surveys local to your area between approximately 1841 through until the 1960s. Following the very first survey, each county in England and Wales were surveyed again between three and five times during this period. Your very own Portfolio will include multiple extracts from these survey editions, meaning that each will typically have seven map extracts in two different scales (1:2,500 & 1:10,560).
As well as the map extracts, a legend is included to help you interpret the history that you will uncover. Additionally, your very own Portfolio will also contain a 1:2,500 aerial photograph of your Portfolio's location in full colour as well as a complimentary extract from the up-to-date OS Landranger map base (scale 1:50,000) in full colour (worth £5.95).
Your very own Portfolio is a unique record of your home's history, as well as a record of the geographical developments of over 150 years in the area around your home and community. More advice on how to further investigate your home's history is also included.
Your My House History Portfolio comes in a high quality case for storage with a very useful device to allow you to remove pages safely and easily without causing them damage. This internal device also allows you to include extra pages in the future.
This gift would make an ideal housewarming gift or is a lovely gesture for a special birthday, anniversary or retirement. Or how about as a special present for some newlyweds staring their new life together? This beautiful, thoughtful Portfolio is bound to be a cherished gift, whatever the occasion.
Only available for locations in England and Wales.
