• This is one in a series of maps of the Ruhrgebiet. It is taken from the British War Office 1:12,500 plans and reduced to approx 1:19,000. Published in 1945, prior to the Allied occupation of the area, the maps are especially good at showing industry, collieries and transport. They can be purchased through our On-line Mapshop.

  • Here are the details of our maps of the Gelsenkirchen area:

    This map covers the area from Gelsenkirchen eastward to Herne, and from Hochlarmark southward to Dahlhauser. Wanne-Eickel is in the centre of the map with its great marshalling yard.
