Welcome to Duncan Street, home of Bartholomew mapmakers from 1911 to 1995.
Step inside and explore the world of cartography according to ‘Barts’. Read, see and listen about the colourists, engravers, draughtsmen, library, printing and more.
Duncan Street Explorer has been designed to follow on from the Bartholomew Archive Exhibition, held recently at the National Library of Scotland (NLS).
“It is the intention that this feature will be a lasting legacy of the work that has been done here on the Archive” Karla Baker (Bartholomew Archive Curator, NLS).
This information represents a small fraction of the items in the Bartholomew Archive. See NLS Bartholomew Archive Collection and NLS Bartholomew Archive Blog
