    This detailed map covers the town of Goole, which was a small village until the 1820s but where the Aire & Calder Navigation Company then established a new town. Docks were then built for the transhipment of goods from the Knottingley & Goole Canal to seagoing vessels. Our map covers most of the town and features include station, St John's church, North Street, Booth Ferry Road, Clifton Gardens, Shuffleton, Tompits Holmes and the streets and houses in these areas. The docks are the dominant feature, including Railway Dock, Aldam Dock, Ship Dock, Barge Dock, Ouse Dock, The Basin, Bonding Dock, each shown with railway connections, swing bridges, locks, cranes, even mooring posts. On the reverse we include extracts from a Directory of Goole in 1889.
