About Me

My interest in antique maps was sparked by a map dealer named P. J. Radford who lived in Denmead near Portsmouth. He got me going and by 1961 I had started to buy and sell antique maps and prints. By the late 60's I had opened a shop in Watergate Street Chester. The shop closed in 1998 when the whole business was moved to the internet.

I am also the webmaster for my village -
