Stanford's Library Map Of London And Its Suburbs... Sheet 12 : E. Stanford

click here to view a large version in a separate window

This sheet of a highly detailed 24-sheet map of London was coloured to show geological detail by James B. Jordan. With street names and detail visible beneath the colour wash, this is a fascinating series showing detail of many parts of present-day London, then villages on the outskirts, or just absorbed into the urban sprawl of the Victorian city. The map is sheet 13 (of 24) of Stanford's large and magnificent "Library Map Of London And Its Suburbs". It is a detailed sheet, showing present-day Canary Wharf, then the Surrey, West India, and East India Docks, with Limehouse and Blackwall Reaches. Extending to Mile End and Bromley in the north, it conveys the sheer scale of London's dockland area. Bugsby Marshes, then little developed, is now the site of the O2 arena. A brief key to the colours. Light Greyish Brown - London Clay Bright Tan - Gravel & Sand Very pale Beige - Alluvium Blue - Woolwich & Reading Beds.
