Shop with olde maps in the window

Being quite a fan of old maps I was brought to a sudden halt when out yesterday evening as I passed an antique store which had a couple of very interesting old maps in their window display.

Popping onto Google Street View this morning to check their name again – it is Altea Gallery – and see if they have a website, it seems that the maps have been in their windows display for some time, as Google showed the same thing as I saw last night.


Their website is equally good – and their highlights page is map-porn for enthusiasts.
