Maps of Torbay
Description: Relief is shown on this drawing by dense brushwork interlining ('hachures'), with the summits of inclines left bare. It is partly the concern with accurate representation of relief that sets these drawings apart from the earlier county maps. Individual trees are shown with their shadows falling to the left. Rocky outcrops in Tor Bay are shown and the beach is tinted yellow. Quarter-inch squares, used to facilitate copying or reduction of the map, can be seen in pencil around the coastline. The drawing has been titled in ink and the scale is noted in the bottom left. It is not orientated to the north.
Contibutor: Stanley, William
