EDITORS COMMENTS
This vintage print showcases a contoured plan of Rivelin Valley Road in Sheffield, Yorkshire, dating back to around 1900. The detailed map, titled "Contoured plan of Rivelin Valley Road shewing land belonging to the Sheffield Water Department" provides valuable insight into the city's historical development and infrastructure. Created by surveyor L. M. S. Marsh, who served as the Water Engineer at that time, this map was skillfully lithographed by Pawson and Brailsford. It features a scale of 25 inches to 1 mile, allowing for precise measurements and accurate representation. The pink line on the map indicates land owned by the Sheffield Water Department that is available for potential building sites or other purposes. In contrast, areas colored blue (though appearing green on the map) are designated solely for recreational grounds and similar uses. Spanning from Rivelin Mill Bridge in the west to Holme Lane Bridge in the east, this comprehensive plan highlights various landmarks along Rivelin Valley Road such as mills, bridges, farms, cottages, wheels (used in manufacturing processes), plantations, allotment gardens, and even religious structures like St Michaels Mortuary Chapel/Roman Catholic Cemetery. Preserved within Sheffield Libraries' archives under reference arc02953 from an original source material held at Sheffield City Archives itself (#57863), this print offers a fascinating glimpse into both urban planning history and local water management practices during that era in Yorkshire's vibrant cityscape.
