Map of the British Empire Exhibition showgrounds with rail, bus, tram and Underground routes shown. Using a style partly reminiscent of 17th century Dutch maps, the artist Kennedy North playfully tackles the task of conveying large amounts of information on the Exhibition and how to get there to the visitor. Britannia, with her dividers, leans over to indicate the scale of the map's exhibition section. To verso there are fascinating illustrated articles promoting the concrete Palaces and many other aspects of this historic Exhibition. "The Palace of Engineering is probably the largest concrete building in the world. It covers an area six and a half times the size of Trafalgar Square." This map could not fail to add to the excitement of a day's visit to the Exhibition. Careful repairs to splits but a very decorative image.
