Early Glasgow Maps

Map of Glasgow showing the city in 1842 [EGM73a]
​A collection of maps showing how the city has changed over the centuries, spreading out from the original settlement around the Cathedral. Most of these maps are not contemporary but drawn a long time after the dates they represent, using available data to show how the city would have looked at the time. Our maps are not originals, except for those which first appeared bound in with books.

To view or download the list, use the link on the right - the notes in the descriptions give some idea of the area covered by each map.​

Glasgow City Council has produced a useful  Medieval City Map showing the development of the city between 1150 and 1550.
