A finely engraved and detailed 19th century map of Durham, by Sidney Hall, which was published in his Travelling Atlas (London: Chapman & Hall, 1842). An interesting feature with maps of this period is the depiction of the then newly constructed (or proposed) railways; in the case of Durham, this includes the Stockton to Darlington line which, when opened in 1825, was the world’s first public railway to use steam engines.
