Maps of London Circa 1903, 1920 & 1930

Maps of London Circa 1903, 1920 & 1930

Ref: LDN1903MAP

(Supplied on a CD) The Circa 1903 map was originally published as The Survey Plan & Guide by J. Bartholomew F.R.G.S. and sold by W.H.Smith of London. The scale of the original is 3.25 inches to the mile. Coverage is from Cricklewood in the north west and Putney in the south west to Hackney Marshes in the north west and Blackheath in the south east. Accompanying this map is an 8 page Visitor's Guide to London and a 27 page Index to Streets and Railway Stations. The map is scanned as 8 overlapping tiles. It has been dated using the railways - it shows Stepney Green station (opened 23 June 1902) but not the line from Moorgate to Finsbury Park (opened 14 February 1914).
From 1920 there are two maps taken from Muirhead's Blue Guide to England, 1920 edition. The first is a Tube and Tramway Map which is divided into numbered squares which are referenced in the text of the book (the CD contains scans of the relevant pages). Coverage is from Golders Green in the north west and Barnes Common in the south west to Leyton in the north east and Lee in the south east. The second map is of the Environs of London covering Watford/Rickmansworth in the north west and Chertsey in the south west to Abridge in the north east and Orpington in the south east. It was originally printed at a scale of half an inch to the mile.
The Circa 1930 map was published by Geographia at a scale of 2.5 inches to the mile. Coverage is from Gladstone Park in the north west and Putney in the south west to Leyton in the north east and Blackheath in the south east. The map is scanned as 6 overlapping tiles. It has also been dated using the railways - it shows Lambeth North station (given that name in 1928), Putney Bridge & Hurlingham station (renamed to Putney Bridge in 1932), Neasden Kingsbury station (renamed to Neasden in 1932) and Down Street station (closed on 21 May 1932).
