Chester Around 1922

Interesting Old Map Of Chester Around 1922
Newtown is located just outside the top right corner of the rectangle, which forms the 'City Walls', in this Interesting Old Map Of Chester Around 1922.
You can just make out a triangle (N.E. of Cathederal) which is the Cattle Market and is (was) the intended location for the new council offices at 'Gorse Stacks'.
