Insurance Plan of City of London Vol. III: sheet 56

1 : 480 This detailed 1887 plan of London is one of a series of twenty-three sheets in an atlas originally produced to aid insurance companies in assessing fire risks. The building footprints, their use (commercial, residential, educational, etc.), the number of floors and the height of the building, as well as construction materials (and thus risk of burning) and special fire hazards (chemicals, kilns, ovens) were documented in order to estimate premiums. Names of individual businesses, property lines, and addresses were also often recorded. Together these maps provide a rich historical shapshot of the commercial activity and urban landscape of towns and cities at the time. The British Library holds a comprehensive collection of fire insurance plans produced by the London-based firm Charles E. Goad Ltd. dating back to 1885. These plans were made for most important towns and cities of the British Isles at the scales of 1:480 (1 inch to 40 feet), as well as many foreign towns at 1:600 (1 inch to 50 feet).

PLAN OF THE CITY OF LONDON DIVIDED INTO WARDS

This plan was published in Allen's 'History of London' of 1828. Its title and a list of the city wards feature below the plan, with ward boundaries indicated by a dotted line. City wards were created in the Norman era with aldermen elected for life for the purpose of government. Ward 'beadles' were employed fulltime with responsibility for the "preservation of peace, supervision of trading, sanitation and local upkeep". Allen, Thomas

Sr. Cristopher Wren's Plan for Rebuilding the City after the dreadfull Conflagration in 1666

1 : 31680 This is an eighteenth-century copy of Sir Christopher Wren's plan for rebuilding London after the great fire destroyed seven-eighths of the city. This reduced plan seems to have been published a number of times. This latest edition has a textual explanation beneath the map. When Wren made his plan for rebuilding he was an Oxford astronomer with comparatively little architectural experience, but he was among the first to present a reconstruction plan after the catastrophe. On this plan the narrow streets which had helped spread the fire are replaced by monumental avenues. The influence of the classical buildings and formal street plans which Wren had studied in Paris are a clear influence. Wren also proposed constructing a Thameside quay from Bridle to the Tower, replacing the ramshackle wooden wharfside buildings with warehouses. A vignette of 'Thamesis' (a putative river god), a female personification of the city, and London burning in the background have been added to the border. Wren's plan was never used. Perhaps due to his eagerness to produce a plan quickly, he was inaccurate in making his ground plan and did not consider contours adequately. Neither king nor parliament were ever to take it seriously, despite title's the assertion that it was 'unhappily defeated by faction.' Wren, Christopher
