The map below is still a Work in Progress and there will be occasional mis-matches between the narrative above and the map below. Please bear with me.

Locations in red are known and (hopefully) accurately placed.
Those in Green are recent additions approximately placed (might be a building or two astray).
Those in blue are only known by name and location (and maybe the street itself) is now lost in the mists of time [or alcoholic haze!]. If you know where any of these were located please let us know.
