We have published two versions of this map, showing how the area developed across the years. Each covers the same area in detail, with coverage stretching from Barr Street and Great Hampton Street eastward to Bloomsbury Street, and from Tower Road southward to Great Brook Street. The map includes the Aston New Town area, much of Duddeston, and Gosta Green. It is a map crowded with terraces and back-to-back houses, along with many small iron works and the like.

Features include the LNWR Aston Goods Branch with goods station and gas works, Birmingham & Fazeley Canal, Digbeth Branch canal, tramways and depot, Perryian Pen Works, vinegar brewery, Holt Brewery, Walmer Recreation Ground, Dunlop Rubber Works, Climax Tube Works, Hockley Brook, St George's church, Constitution Hill, St Mary's Ward, Aston Cross, etc. Some of the housing must have been desperately overcrowded.

On the reverse we include street directory entries for (1902 map) New Town Row and Summer Lane; and (1913 map) Aston Road, Aston Road North, Dartmouth Street, Pritchett Street, Tower Road, Tower Street.

The map links up with sheets 8.13 Aston Manor to the north, 13.04 Winson Green to the west, 14.02 Saltley to the east and 14.05 Central Birmingham to the south.
