Wow!

Just looking around and some of the AT stuff seems to go for amazing/ridiculous prices.  I've got a reasonable collection of maps etc, from the 80s but although there's a part of me that would sell them, I know I'd probably immediately regret it after.  There's still something nostalgic about holding the actual things in your hand and remembering how you felt when you first got the map/leaflet/brochure through the post.

Incidentally, which '86 map was it?  The later one with Towers St at the bottom or the earlier one which was the map from the previous two years tarted up a bit?
For the third time that day, his flaps fell off.

I'm not looking to buy or sell, but did find this that might be of use to a collector. From c. 1899 it's a map of the towers and surrounding areas and can be bought for £8 on ebay (plus £1 postage):

I've got the maps from 1981 - 1999, bar 1982, 1995 and 1998.  Then jumps to 2003 and 2004 for some bizarre reason.
