A window into the past

In the 1740s and 1750s two men named Russel Casson and John Berry produced a series of exquisitely illustrated maps of Manchester and Salford. This series has become one of the most important resources for studying the growth and development of our great cities, and remains in constant use by scholars. To find out more about the maps, visit our 101 Treasures page on the Library website.
