Map of the Cinque Ports (Victorian engraving)

An old map of the Cinque Ports, which are five historic ports on the south-eastern corner of Kent, England. The Confederation of Cinque Ports (Cinque is pronounced asinka) was originally formed for trade and military purposes but now exists as a mainly ceremonial organisation. The original Ports were Hastings, New Romney, Hythe, Dover and Sandwich, though when Romney silted up, Rye became one of the Ports. From Our Own Country: Descriptive, Historical, Pictoriala published by Cassell & Co Ltd, 1885

EDITORS COMMENTS
This Victorian engraving showcases an old map of the Cinque Ports, a group of five historic ports nestled in the southeastern corner of Kent, England. Originally established for trade and military purposes, the Confederation of Cinque Ports has evolved into a primarily ceremonial organization. The original ports included Hastings, New Romney, Hythe, Dover, and Sandwich; however, when Romney silted up over time, Rye took its place among these renowned harbors. Published in 1885 by Cassell & Co Ltd as part of "Our Own Country: Descriptive Historical Pictorial" this vertical panoramic print offers a glimpse into the past with its black and white depiction. From Dungeness to Winchelsea and Pevensey Bay to Folkestone—each location is meticulously illustrated on this enchanting map. Transporting us back through time with its monochrome charm and intricate details, this engraved image invites us to explore British culture and social history from the 19th century. It captures not only the geographical features but also evokes nostalgia for a bygone era filled with battles fought along these shores. As we gaze upon this remarkable piece of cartography depicting ancient coastlines along the English Channel's edge, it serves as a reminder that history is etched within every line. A testament to England's rich maritime heritage and cultural significance, this print preserves our connection to centuries past while igniting our curiosity about these famous destinations within East Sussex.
