A to Z of Victorian London 1888
The Atlas consists of 59 map sheets from Bacon’s New Large-Scale Ordnance Atlas of London & Suburbs, which appeared in 1888. The introductory notes have been written by Ralph Hyde. The index allows users of the A to Z to find any street, road, lane, wharf, square or public building.
The area covered reaches to Mill Hill to the North, Chislehurst and New Bromley to the South, Abbey Wood to the East and Southall to the West, thus taking in the greater part of today’s suburbia. Useful detail includes banks, theatres, insurance houses, statues and named terraces.
Two complete maps are included: 34 map sheets covering the central area at 9″ scale and 25 covering the wider area at 4″ scale. The map sheets are reproduced slightly reduced in scale as page pairs. This atlas is an essential aid to historians, geographers and genealogists. <br>Published in association with Guildhall Library, London.
