Norris Museum – Digitising map project
One of our lovely supporters, Chris Thomas is currently digitising our map collection for us here at The Norris.
Here’s one of the maps he has been working on…
This small map of Huntingdonshire by Badeslade in 1741 appears to show a relatively empty county (in contrast to reality)! Note the spelling of some of the placenames. Printed black and white, this specimen was hand coloured.
Would it have helped you find your way around at the time?
