Made By Burbs – What’s So Great About Portsmouth?

Jennifer Burbridge is Made By Burbs, she has just created something that I think is nicer than anything I have seen Portsmouth City Council produce.

Jennifer created this map of Portsmouth as her submission for They Draw & Travel who recently held a competition to create a map of of the city where you grew up. Jennifer says to her “Portsmouth is generally known as place where nothing much happens, but to those that live there it’s a treasure trove of things to do. So much so that I couldn’t fit everything on”.

I love what she’s chosen to feature across the whole of the City. This doesn’t just capture the typical Southsea landmarks. What I am really interested in seeing the the What’s Not So Great About Portsmouth Map!

You can see a larger version of the map HERE. You can even get yourself a copy via the Etsy page HERE.

    I think this is a wonderful idea . It looks fresh and beautifully made and, obviously, unique to the artist. I wish there could have been a representation of the 12 PUBLIC grass tennis courts which are between Canoe Lake and the 10th Hole. Even if not a fan of the game itself, these grass courts , which have been in place since 1926, are not only unique to Southsea/{Portsmouth but as far as I can find out, unique to Great Britain and further afield. Maybe they just didn’t make the cut by the artist!
