Manchester is a city in Greater Manchester, England. Throughout the Middle Ages Manchester remained a manorial township, but began to expand "at an astonishing rate" around the turn of the 19th century. Manchester's unplanned urbanisation was brought on by a boom in textile manufacture during the Industrial Revolution, and resulted in it becoming the world's first industrialised city. Manchester achieved city status in 1853.

This is a highly detailed 1848 map of Manchester. It shows building shapes, road names, rivers, hills, fields and more. Large landscape format which is true to the original drawing.
