Burgh Surveyor’s Map of Lanark

Year: 1913

The map is a fascinating glimpse of Lanark just before the outbreak of war in 1914. Interesting features on this map include a plethora of railway lines which include a railway line heading south which connected Lanark with Ayr. It also includes the Bonnington Electric Laundry out by Lanark Golf Course, The Lanark Poor House and Smyllum House which was used a Catholic Orphanage.

Since it is obviously based on an Ordnance Map, it is reproduced with the courtesy of the Ordnance Survey Division.
