1920s Sheet no. 19 Michelin Map of COLCHESTER - DOVER Colour printed on cloth, dissected sections. Excellent Condition Scale 3.15 miles to 1 inch These maps did not have the date included until 1923, so this map is pre 1923. Lovely graphic of the iconic Michelin tyre men entwined around the "MICHELIN" The map was intended as a touring map for those who possessed one of those new fangled automobiles and shows the main roads with miles between places, impracticable roads, dangerous places, picturesque roads, roads, where you have to pay tolls, railways and points of local interest, such as "Aviation Ground" on the Isle of Sheppey. Basically invaluable !
It covers the area from Maidstone Colchester, hastings in the West to Harwich, Margate, Folkestone in the East
