Gall and Inglis graded road maps of Scotland, 1900s-1930s

Gall and Inglis graded road maps of Scotland graphic

The Graded Road Maps series at half-inch to the mile (1:126,440) covered England and Wales, as well as southern Scotland, and this is why the sheet numbering below begins at Sheet 56. The series was intended for cyclists and motorists, with a unique colour coding of roads into four categories (superior; good; inferior; and rough) and with triangular symbols for dangerous (in bold) and steep hills. We also include on this page Gall & Inglis' Tourists Map of the Clyde, published in the 1920s and 1930s.

The Edinburgh-based firm of Gall & Inglis originated in a printing business set up by James Gall in 1810. His son, also called James, joined the firm in 1838 but resigned in 1847 to become a Church of Scotland minister. In 1847, Robert Inglis, soon to be his son in law, joined the firm, which survived through to the 1960s.
