A guide to the world’s oldest tyre maps
When the British-built Oxford Continental became the first car to run on tyre oil in 1871, it was the most successful car ever made.
The Continental’s name refers to the oil it was derived from, which was used to lubricate the car’s tyres.
Today, it is the oldest tyre map on the planet.
It was created by James C. Clark, a tire historian at Oxford University, and it is currently on display in the US at the National Tire and Rubber Museum.
The map was made in 1888 by Charles Denton, a London engineer, and John E. Tugwell, a member of the Royal Society of London.
It is based on an old photograph of a tyre and shows what appears to be the same tyre map as seen on a newspaper in 1886.
This is because the oil was used by the Continental to lubricates the car and it had been in storage for a year.
The colour scheme is almost identical to the one on the original map.
However, Tugwood’s original map was not available for public view until 1990, when it was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
“The original map in 1890 was the only map we had, and we didn’t know that the oil map was so much older,” he told BBC News.
“This was something that we hadn’t thought of before, and when it got published in Science magazine it was one of the first papers to do a search for that particular oil map.”
The first road map The most interesting part of this story is that Tugwoods map was actually the first road-map on the map.
Tugs maps were based on his own research into the history of tyres.
“It was really important for me to get my hands on this map, because I knew that there were lots of interesting things that I had discovered in the research I was doing into this,” he said.
“In the 1880s and 1890s, people were starting to work on road and tyre maps and we were just starting to look at how roads were laid, the length of a road, the thickness of the road, and so on.”
The oil map is also an example of a map that is based upon historical data.
“I’ve got a map of London and the first map of the city in 1867 was based upon the water level,” he explained.
“My theory is that when you have water levels rising, roads are going to be more likely to rise, because there’s less resistance from water.”
This is why a road map of a town or country can have more features than a map from an era that was a little more advanced.
Togwell’s map, which he described as “very interesting”, was also based upon his own discoveries.
“Tugwell was working on the theory that road surfaces would have to be quite a lot smoother than the roads in the city,” he recalled.
Tugwright’s map shows the extent of the area of a new road, as it was built by the first British car, the Royal Dukes of York, to cross a road that was already there. “
That was the first thing that I came across, and that’s how I was able to put that map together.”

The area that Togwood’s map covers, the part of the map that was made for Tug Wells, is known as the “Great Western Highway”.
In the early days of the railways, there was a stretch of the Great Western Highway that stretched from Preston to Manchester and from Manchester to Edinburgh.
“We know that there was this stretch of road where it went up, but it didn’t go up very high, it went down,” Tugworth explained.
The Great Western Railway “This is what was built in the late 1800s by the Dukes, the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire,” Togworth said.
The railway line was named after a famous explorer, Sir William Marston, and a small road was built through it.
“There’s also the famous line of railway through the town of Wigan, which ran between Wigan and Newcastle,” Tagwell explained.
A road map in 1885 shows the area that is now a part of Wivenhoe, in the county of Lancashire.
Tuggwell was also keen to know the exact time of day when the oil came from the oilfield in the area.
“And the answer was: it came about a week after the oil fields started working, so they were starting the oil from the beginning,” he added.
“They were making oil and putting it into the ground and the next day it started to get out.”
Togsworth’s map of Waunghe in Lancashires county of Wiggin shows how much the oil had travelled.
The oil was extracted at a distance of one metre and Tugway had been working at the oilfields for about three
