The recently completed St.Paul's Cathedral is central to this detailed Ward plan and is shown, amongst other important buildings, in profile. A key identifies 78 numbered locations of courts, major buildings, taverns and so on. The plan appeared in Strype's edition of John Stow's "Survey of London" and was engraved by Richard Blome. Very decorative.
