Over the last twenty years or so I have built a robust collection of antique maps showing Holderness in Yorkshire in the 17th and 18th centuries. Mostly I find it interesting to compare the ways the maps are drawn. There is also something of family connection as my forebears passed through the area and the area carries the family name. This gallery only shows a subset of my collection.
