How extensive is your collection Luke? I'm sure I have some old ones (1970's) somewhere, from NZ and other places. Grey matter so bad, I can't even remember where raftl If I can find them, would you be interested?

As for myself, I collect other people junk now !! Rapidly becoming like a storage unit for my offspring.

Luke, without too much trouble I have found three.Not sure about the others.

1) 1977 Izmir, Turkey. Street map

2) 1974 Huge map of Northland ,New Zealand

3) O/S map of The English Lakes. Ennerdale and Derwent .Must be about 1978 but I don't suppose it's changd much there.

Let me know, won't be offended if you don't want them.

I have the following A-Z maps if you're interested.
Liverpool
Sheffield
Newcastle upon Tyne
Leicester
Derby
Nottingham
Glasgow
Bristol & Bath

Some are a bit tatty. Most of them date from the 1990's
They would cost about 3 to post.

Quite so. I'd foolishly failed to notice his location. The actual price is about 14.
