1875 Wilts and Berks Canal maps-East End

Vic and I went to the history centre last week to copy the maps.

We laid the maps out on the floor and took two pictures per map, from the top of the steps. At home I stitched the pairs of photos together and put them in the same format as the previous maps. What with the uneven lighting, the camera resolution, handheld camera, and the poor condition of some maps, the quality is nowhere near as good as the Berks ones. But still useful I think.
