    This highly detailed map covers Whitby, surely one of the most enjoyable seaside towns in the country. As expected, the map is crowded with the narrow streets and alleys that lead up from the harbour, each tiny house meticulously shown. The map covers virtually all the town and major features include (on the east bank) the great Abbey, St Mary's church, Abbey House, Workhouse, East Cliff, Church Street, Haggerlythe, Helredale, Whitehall Dockyard, Spital Vale, Collier Hope, Market Place. On the west bank are the railway and station, a stretch of the Saltburn & Whitby line with Prospect Hill Junction, Airy Hill, Fishburn Park, Victoria Square, Flowergate, Chubb Hill Road, Burtree Cragg, St Hilda's church, North Terrace, West Cliff, Boghall. Earlier on Whitby had been a great shipbuilding centre, had connections with Captain Cook, before going into decline in the 19th century. Today all visitors known the seemingly never-ending Church Stairs, depicted here, and the atmospheric scenes conjured up by Bram Stoker in Dracula. On the reverse of the map we include a list of private residents from a 1905 directory.
