Ordnance Survey Maps One-inch "Popular" edition, Scotland, 1921-1930

Ordnance Survey, one-inch

The "Popular" edition name reflected Ordnance Survey's desire to produce an attractive contoured road map in seven colours that would be popular with the general public. The larger sheet area than previous one-inch to the mile maps, even with new overlaps between sheets, allowed the whole of Scotland to be covered on 92 sheets, numbered from north to south. The first printings were all based on a field revision of 1921-1930, also incorporating data from the (limited) county revision from 1921 onwards. Although showing many similarities to the "Popular" edition of England and Wales, the Scottish sheets differed in some respects, such as showing parish boundaries and names, showing buildings in solid black rather than hatched, with limits shown for rough pasture, and showing parks by dots rather than ruled. Following the completion of the series in 1932, there were revisions and re-issues of some sheets as shown below. The series was updated and reissued in various military editions between 1933 and 1944 (including GSGS 3908), before appearing with the new National Grid lines (1945-1948).
