recent arrival
This sheet of Richard Horwood's multi-sheet map of London shows some of the city's lost waterways, now beneath the railway to Victoria station. Turpentine Lane today no longer leads to a "White Lead Manufactory"! The extensive gardens which gave their name to the Churchill Gardens estate are given in beautiful detail. Horwood's map is described by Howgego as, "the largest and most important map of London from the eighteenth century." The survey took no less than nine years to complete, showing every house (with its street number, if it had one), alleyways, courts and even vacant plots. Among the subscribers to the map were the directors of the Phoenix Assurance Office to whose trustees and directors Horwood dedicated the map. At the massive scale of 26 inches to one mile, the insurers had a vested interest in the project - it would have repaid their investment in the map, affording detailed knowledge of London's potential fire risks and those in need of their insurance services!
