Aye Jane,

Another way to view Castle Street on OS 25inch to the mile scale mapping, without the Charles Booth information and with the latest satellite imagery beneath. The opacity of the map is controlled by the blue slider to the left of the map image.

Please note that these increases in fees apply to the UK General Record Office (GRO) and not to the National Records of Scotland (NRS).
