Untitled [Camberwell] : R.Horwood

This sheet of Richard Horwood's multi-sheet map of London covers the area between Upper Ground in the North, St George's Road in the South, Lambeth Road in the West and Great Suffolk Street in the East. Notable landmarks include "The Obelisk" at the centre of today's St George's Circus; "The Asylum" on the site of a Catholic church today; the "Philanthropic Society", Magdalen Hospital and a "Public Kitchen". 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!
