The first of these is Bacon's Large Scale Plan of Sheffield (1920's, colour).

Any best guesses as to the year of Publication ?

Sheffield 1823 by John Leather

Scanned from a photocopy of an original print.

I think that this was originally published in a book called 'The Picture of Sheffield' in 1824.

Rotated close up of the top right corner:

Heres a more modern Map

Ordnance Survey SK38 2.5 inch map from 1958

The grids on this map are equal to a group of 4 on the main Ordnance survey maps on the main section, hence will make a good index sheet, see post 1 on main section. Main Map Section Page 1

(Kind of hard on the eyes, which is a shame because there has obviously been an enormous amount of work gone into this and I just can't read it)

The population figures quoted on this map (bottom left part) are for 1901 & 1891, obviously census date, the whole layout of the map looks very similar to other late 19c colour maps.

If it is a 1920's map, (can't myself see where 1920 is mentioned) "Bacon" must have just re-used an older map.
