Machine coloured map, dissected and mounted on linen. Folds into hard card case, with paper label. An interesting and rare antique map of Bristol & Clifton.

Includes an index to streets and buildings, but many streets and lanes are not labelled on the map.

A main point of interest is that this map was produced between the recommencement of work on the Clifton Suspension Bridge in 1862, and its completion in 1864.

Extremely useful for finding Bristol streets in the 1861 Census, this is a very rare map of Bristol from this period.
