MAP - 1862 - Counties of Dumfries, Kirkcudbright, and Wigtown, SCOTLAND. Map provided by Clifford A. Johnston

Pearland, Texas

Dating of this map was incorrect by the seller; however, I've had some help from others.

Assuming that the map's author drew "what he saw" then, his map shows the line from Dumfries to Port Patrick (opened 12/3/1861) and also the line from Stranraer to Port Patrick (opened on 28/8/1862) but does not show the Stranraer Harbour Branch which wasn't opened until 1st October 1862.

In conclusion, and if all the clues add together to make a solution, the map was drawn between August 28, 1862 and October 1, 1862.

We owe our thanks to Alastair Macdonald for this fine piece of detective work :-)

I've done some significant retouching, but the map is not finished, yet. Eventually I'll correct the color miss-registrations so that the map will look better than it ever did.

I've had several inquiries about making this map available as a print. If you would like a print on 13"x19" matte paper of the finished map suitable for framing I will make it available for $20 delivered U.S.A. rolled in a tube for protection - very reasonable considering all of the time taken for the restoration - I'm over 100 hours already and looking at another 60-80 perhaps. The prints will be of fine art quality suitable for framing. The original coloring, or as close as I can get with Photoshop after over a century of aging, will be maintained including shading. Outside the U.S. - ask about additional postage fees, nothing else added.

Enjoy! :-)
