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.
