Insurance Plan of London Western District Vol. A: sheet 40-2

1 : 480 This detailed 1901 plan of London is one of a series of forty-one 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).

CROSS'S LONDON GUIDE

This is the second edition of Cross's London Guide, originally published in 1837 and issued four times. The cover title of this edition is 'CROSS'S POCKET PLAN OF LONDON AND STREET DIRECTORY 1844'. Its principal interest lies in its detailing of the expansion of the railways. London's first railway was opened in 1836, running between Bermondsey and Deptford, reducing the average travelling time from an hour to eight minutes. This line was extended to Greenwich and London Bridge, with the extension recorded on the map. By 1841 there were six terminal stations in London, with railways linking London with Birmingham and Southampton. These terminals were set at a distance from the centre of the city, due to fears of street congestion. This map shows the Great Western, Birmingham, Eastern Counties, Blackwall, Southampton and Croydon railways. The intended position of Hungerford Bridge is also shown. Cross, Joseph

CARY'S New and Accurate Plan of LONDON, WESTMINSTER, the Borough of SOUTHWARK and parts adjacent

John Cary was possibly the most productive English map maker and publisher of the18th Century. His works were reissued many times, but unlike many of his contemporaries he aimed to update each edition by showing new developments. This is the third edition of a map first published in 1787. The developments in Somers Town are shown; the Lambeth and London roads are named. The numerous parks and gardens across the city are coloured green. The map is divided into squares, numbered for reference. Cary, John
