And its zoomable, so you can double click on the image, or use the scroll button on your mouse, and get right into the detail of the map.

A massive thanks to Bryan goes without saying :o)

Excellent! Perhaps that link could go on the genealogy board?

Thanks Bryan
I can now relate to where I lived and surroundings as a child regarding my previous posts ie Tallybank being Tan-y-bank and Gelli cottages being Gewly Cottages as Emrys had previously pointed out.

Cracking map Bryan!

Well, did you ever wake up, with them bullfrogs on your mind?

We will also stick a link to the map in the History section. The image itself is made up of 120 small zoomed in pictures, stitched together. Seems to work very well.

I've passed that link to another genealogy forum that I use, hope that's OK. So many people seem to have links with Tredegar, there are always queries about churches, chapels and streets.
I had quite an eerie feeling actually looking at the house where my g.g. grandma lived in Ysgubor Wen.

That's fascinating! I love old maps and what they tell you about a place. Not being from the area (Mum's side of the family are from nr Manchester, Dad's from Birmingham and I was brought up nr Manchester) its interesting to see how the area has changed. I can't believe how industrial the place looked back then (brick works, pits, iron works etc)! And also how many chapel's & churches there were but also a brewery! Work hard, pray hard, play hard maybe?

Thanks for putting it Pierre and thanks Bryan for sharing it with us.

My thanks must go to Pierre for the time and trouble he has taken to photograph and stitch all the frames together.

When I acquired the map, like you all, I was fascinated to look up where my relatives lived during the time of the Industrial Revolution.

Some lived in Carpenter's Row; others in Church Square etc. My grandfather's house in Mafeking Terrace hadn't yet been built - 30 Mafeking Terrace.

Thank you all for your positive comments, but our real thanks must go to Pierre.
