The transformations which occurred to Stamdorf, a local industrial village in England in 2015 when compared to its status in 1985 are portrayed in the given maps.

Overall, it is clear from the maps that the village had developed to a well-planned town over this period.

In 1985, the only notable establishment in the village was the factory on the banks of river Thames, towards the Northeast of the Arlington road. A wooden bridge was there on the road, across the river, at the Southwest end of the factory. Crossing the bridge, towards the Northwest, there were small roadside inns on the right side of the road, and almost opposite to it, there existed a field.

In 2015, an industrial zone appeared exactly at the North of Stamford, with a staff quarters located to its immediate West. The factory is seen demolished and small road side inns are seen to the side of the road where it was located. On the other side of the Arlington road, on both sides of the river, two housing estates emerged, the first at the North and the other at the South. When the field was relocated further towards the river, the bridge was made steel.
