Thumbs up.png This file is truly delightful.
It is likely to bring a smile to your face, probably because it contains the sort of thing that makes trawling through dusty archive documents worthwhile. The thing in this file that makes your day might actually have nothing to do with its subject matter.

Context

It's the 1964 Ten Mile Map of Britain, Sheet 2! What more can one say? Includes four mile inserts for London, the Midlands and Manchester, and marks the first appearance of motorways on a ten mile map.
