1949 Denis Mason Jones Pictorial Map Of Leeds, England


An exquisite and uncommon 1948 pictorial representation of Leeds, England, crafted by the skilled architect and artist, Denis M. Jones. This map is believed to be Jones' inaugural venture into the world of pictorial cartography. It encompasses the entirety of Leeds, from the landmarks of Water Lane and Great Wilson Street to the notable streets of Blackman Lane and Randhay Road. The map features detailed profiles of significant edifices, with the majestic Civic Hall taking centre stage. The River Aire is prominently showcased in the heart of the map. Surrounding the map are ornate illustrations and the profiles of prominent buildings in Leeds. At the pinnacle of the map, you'll find the heraldic crest of the city of Leeds, adding a touch of grandeur.

Denis M. Jones created this map during a short stint in London after World War II, where he resided with the renowned pictorial mapmaker and publisher Kerry Lee. Around 1948, this map saw the light of day through Lee's enterprise, Pictorial Maps Ltd, and it was expertly printed in Great Britain by Chromoworks Ltd. It forms a segment of a collection of pictorial maps, primarily designed by Lee, portraying various cities in England.

This antique map has been framed, mounted and glazed.
