We have published two versions of this busy map, showing how the area changed across the years. Coverage stretches from Rotton Park Reservoir eastward to Bingley Hall and King Alfred's Place, and from Spring Hill southward to Five Ways and Hagley Road.

The map includes the Ladywood area and has a marked contrast between the cramped streets of terraces and back-to-backs of Ladywood and the more spacious detached houses on the south side of Hagley Road, at the foot of the map. The busy Broad Street area is included. Features include Birmingham Canal, Birmingham Canal (Old Line), various branch canals, LNWR Stour Valley Railway with Monument Lane station, goods stations and engine sheds, Harborne Branch with Icknield Port Road station, tramways, Children's Hospital, Grammar School, Queen's Hospital, Bingley Hall, skating rinks, Assembly Rooms, Prince of Wales Theatre, many engineering works and other workshops, Palace Theatre, St John's church, The Oratory, RC High School, Summerfield Park, schools, Lower Edgbaston Reservoir, etc and much else. On the reverse we include a selection of street directory entries.

The 1887 version is fully coloured, taken from the beautiful 1st Edition OS handcoloured edition.
