Reynolds's Map of Modern London. Divided into Quarter Mile Sections

REYNOLDS, James; JARMAN, Richard

Regular price $400.00 Sale

Scale: 3.5 inches to the mile. Drawn and engraved by R. Jarman. This is a map only, with no accompanying Visitor's Guide. Map area extends from Highbury in the north to Camberwell in the south and from Notting Hill in the west to Limehouse in the east. Some of the railways show proposed extensions. The Thames River has, inside the north bank, lines showing Proposed Line of Embankment and Proposed Roadway between Westminster Bridge (Houses of Parliament) to Blackfriars Bridge, a distance of something over a mile. This would have narrowed the river considerably on that curve if the project had been undertaken. Boyle 224.
