Moy, near Dungannon in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland. The creator of this amalgam of three maps needed to join them to show the extent of free delivery for mail, part of the Great Post Office Reform of 1839-40, championed by Rowland Hill. Another part of this reorganisation was the introduction of the Penny Black, the world's first postage stamp.
